The soldiers struck the detainees with batons, and dragged them away, before searching and deliberately destroying their personal belongings.

In addition, the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) has reported that the soldiers broke into Sections 12 and 13 of Nafha, and moved eight detainees into solitary confinement.
