Israeli occupation forces Monday overnight detained 25 Palestinians from various parts of the occupied West Bank, said the Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS).
PPS confirmed in a press statement that Israeli occupation forces detained 21 Palestinians in multiple raids across Ramallah and al-Bireh district.
Local sources identified nine of the detainees as residents of Kobar town, three others as residents of Ramallah city, two others as residents of Kafr Ein village, another as resident of Abu Qash town, two others as residents of Ein Qiniya village, another as a resident of Budrus town and another as a resident of Saffa village.
In Jerusalem, PPS confirmed an Israeli occupation forces raid in Abu Dis town, east of Jerusalem, resulting in the detention of a Palestinian.
In the northern West Bank, PPS said that one Palestinian was rounded up from Nablus city, another from Jenin city and another from Salfit city.
Israeli occupation forces carry out frequent raids across the West Bank –including occupied East Jerusalem– on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.
These raids, which take place also in areas under the full control of the Palestinian Authority, are conducted with no need for a search warrant, whenever and wherever the military chooses in keeping with its sweeping arbitrary powers.
According to Palestinian figures, roughly 5,700 Palestinians — including numerous women and children — are currently languishing in Israeli detention facilities.
