West Bank, ALRAY – The Israeli occupation army conducted a pre-dawn detention campaign in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday morning, detaining at least five Palestinian citizens.
According to local sources, Israeli occupation forces detained four young men after breaking into Silwad town, east of Ramallah, in the central occupied West Bank.
Israeli occupation forces also detained a young man during a raid on Deir Sammit town, southwest of Hebron, in the southern occupied West Bank.
Meanwhile, the Israeli occupation army conducted raids into several areas of Qalqiliya, Jericho, Al-Bireh, and Nablus.
The Israeli occupation army routinely carries out raids and incursions into the towns and villages of the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
Such raids have intensified since the start of the year with Palestinian citizens detained on a near-daily basis.
Over the past week, the Israeli occupation army detained around 200 Palestinian citizens from the occupied West Bank, mostly from Hebron, Nablus, Ramallah, and Jenin.
The number of Palestinian detainees held in inhumane conditions in Israeli occupation prisons has reached over 5,200, at least 1,264 of whom, including 20 children and four women, are held under “administrative detention” without charge, according to Palestinian prisoners’ rights groups.
