Friday, July 9, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces today detained seven Palestinians from various parts of the West Bank, according to local and security sources.
They confirmed that Israeli police rounded up three Palestinians from inside Israel. The detainees were identified as residents of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.
In Tulkarm district, Israeli forces detained a mother along with her son after storming their house in the Thanaba neighborhood, east of the city.
In the southern West Bank, the sources confirmed a military raid in Sa‘ir town, northeast of Hebron, resulting in the detention of two brothers.
Israeli forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank 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.
Under Israeli military law, army commanders have full executive, legislative and judicial authority over 3 million Palestinians living in the West Bank. Palestinians have no say in how this authority is exercised.
