Israeli occupation forces arrested a number of Palestinian youths in occupied al-Quds and across the West Bank during raids since dawn today, which targeted at least 30 Palestinians mainly in the governorates of al-Khalil, Qalqilya, Ramallah, Jenin, Areeha, and Salfit, according to the Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs Commission and the Prisoners Club.
The two authorities explained that the arrests were accompanied by abuse, severe beatings, field investigations, and threats against detainees and their families, in addition to widespread sabotage and ransacking of citizens’ homes.
In occupied al-Quds, an Israeli force stormed Qalandia camp and deployed Israeli snipers on the roofs of some buildings. Meanwhile, Palestinian youth Ammar Yasser Mutair was detained.
In the city of Ramallah, Israeli occupation forces stormed al-Masayef neighborhood, surrounded al-Israa Mosque in the area, and arrested Palestinian youth Muhammad al-Barghouthi after storming his residence. In the town of Birzeit, Israeli occupation forces arrested youth Amir Sayej and seized his car.
The occupation forces only withdrew from the town of Kafr Qaddum in Qalqilya after they arrested Palestinian youths: Khaled Murad Barham, Qusay Adnan Juma, and Orwa Marwan Ali.
In al-Khalil, south of the West Bank, Israeli occupation forces detained freed prisoner, Waad Jamal al-Badawi, and Palestinian youth, Mahmoud Issam al-Badawi, after storming their residences in al-Fawwar camp. In the town of Carmel, Israeli forces seized Palestinian cars.
Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces also stormed the town of Nahalin, west of Beit Lahm, after storming the town of Aqraba, south of Nablus, where the occupation blew up the family home of prisoner Osama Bani Fadl.
The occupation forces also carried out a detention campaign and field investigations in the town targeting a number of Palestinian youths.
Sources explained that Palestinian youths confronted the Israeli soldiers in the area, who fired sound and gas bombs, which led to a number of them suffocating, while the occupation forces prevented ambulances from tending to the injured.
The Israeli occupation continues its campaigns of raids and arrests across the West Bank, as part of the comprehensive aggression against the Palestinian people, and in conjunction with the genocidal war it has been waging against the people of the Gaza Strip for more than 70 days now. This brings the total number of arrests since October 7 in the West Bank to 4,605.
Israeli occupation forces simultaneously stormed the city of Areeha, east of the West Bank, from several axes, as well as the towns of Surif and Beit Ummar, north of the city of al-Khalil, and the town of Bani Naim, to the east, amid Palestinian Resistance.
