Occupied WB, ALRAY - Israeli occupation forces on Tuesday at dawn launched a wide-scale campaign of raids and detentions across several parts of the occupied West Bank towns and cities.

Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) reported that the IOF forces detained 24 Palestinians during the campaign and transferred them for interrogation allegedly for taking part in hostile activities against the occupation state.

The PPS pointed out that the raids and detentions were centered in Nablus, Ramallah, and Jenin, and included the storming and ransacking of dozens of houses.

In Nablus, the IOF forces detained six people, including ex-detainees and Islamic Bloc activists in An-Najah University.

The PPS named the six detainees as Abdul Rahim Bushkar, brothers Islam and Anas al-Hifna, spokesperson for the Islamic Bloc Jihad Ahmad, Ibrahim al-Kharaz, and Amir al-Azizi.

In Ramallah, the Israeli occupation forces launched a campaign of detentions across its town of Silwad, detaining at least ten people. The majority of them are ex-detainees.

The PPS identified the detainees as Anas Hammad, Handala Hammad, Laith Hamed, Anas Jamain, Musa Hamed, Omar Hamed, Mohammed Hammad, Asef Hamed, Abdul Rahim Hammad, and Yusuf al-Aneed.

It indicated that the Israeli occupation forces also broke into the house of the head of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society and ransacked it in search of his son.

Israeli occupation forces routinely carry out arrest raids in the West Bank. Around 40 percent of Palestinian men living in the occupied territories have been detained by Israel at some point in their lives.   

According to Palestinian figures, about 4,500 Palestinians, including 32 women and 160 children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention jails.
