Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, www.imemc.org, for Monday, April 20th, 2015.
Israeli radical stab a Palestinian worker in Tel Aviv, meanwhile soldiers invade West Bank communities and kidnap civilians. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.
On Monday midday, a Palestinian worker was injured after being stabbed by a radical Israeli man near Tel Aviv.
Israeli sources said that the Palestinian was working at a construction site in the town Herzliya near Tel Aviv when he was attacked a radical Israeli man who was shouting death to Arabs.
The attacker escaped and the police says they are looking for him. The Palestinian worker was moved to hospital after sustaining moderate injuries, Israeli sources added.
Earlier on Monday at dawn Israeli soldiers invaded several Palestinian communities in different parts of the West Bank, and kidnapped twelve Palestinians, including four children.
Palestinian sources reported invasions and homes searches in the cities Bethlehem and Hebron, southern West Bank, in addition Ramallah in central West Bank.
Moreover Israeli troops stormed a telecommunications company in Hebron city, southern West Bank, and searched.
Furthermore, soldiers and settlers invaded a Palestinian orchard in the al-Khader town, south of Bethlehem, and prevented a farmer from plowing his land.
In other news, The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said that the Israeli military court of Ofer has issued administrative detention orders against another five Palestinian prisoners.
Administrative detention is the imprisonment of Palestinians without charge or trial. Israel uses administrative detention routinely as a form of collective punishment and mass detention of Palestinians, and frequently uses administrative detention when it fails to obtain confessions in interrogations of Palestinian detainees.
