West Bank, ALRAY - The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) carried out on Wednesday morning a large-scale campaign of raids and arrests across multiple districts of the occupied West Bank towns and cities and Jerusalem, during which several Palestinians were detained.


Local sources reported that the IOF detained five Palestinians, from the Bethlehem governorate, after raiding on and ransacking the houses of their families.


The sources pointed out that the IOF detained Musallam al-Debs, 15, and Muhammad Rumi, 18, from Aida Refugee Camp, Malek al-Zaghari, 24, from Al-Dawha town, as well as brothers Mahmoud, 18, and Ali, 23, Muhammad Daqadaq from al-Khader town.


The sources indicated that the IOF stormed Kendo Gas Station in Bethlehem and examined its surveillance cameras.


Also, the IOF detained Anas Wajih Abtalli, 25, and his brother Adam, 20, after breaking into and ransacking the house of their family in the city of Qalqilya.


In addition, the IOF broke into the village of Kobar, north of the city of Ramallah, and detained citizen Khaled al-Abed, brother of the prisoner Omar al-Abed.


As of Talkarem, the IOF stormed the house of the prisoner Fathi Khasib in Qaffin town, north of the city, and broke also into the house of the wounded prisoner Muhammad Musleh, in Deir al-Ghusun town, north of the city, suspected by the IOF of attempting to carry out a stab attack in the pre-1948 occupied territories ten days ago.


In Hebron, the IOF summoned ex-prisoner Raed Abu Zaanona, after raiding on his house in at-Tabaqa village, southwest of the city.


Moreover, in occupied Jerusalem, the IOF detained Mahmoud al-Rajbi, as well as youth brothers Ahmad and Muhammad Naser Muhaisen from Al-Issawiya neighborhood, east of the city.
