Israeli soldiers and police officers have detained, this week alone, 89 Palestinians workers “for entering Israel without permits,” and shut down twelve construction sites for hiring them.

According to Israeli media outlets, the police arrested 20 persons; many are contractors, and others are drivers, for transporting and providing aid to the Palestinian workers, including providing them with shelter.

They added that the police shut down 12 work places since the beginning of this year, for hiring Palestinian workers who do not have work permits in Israel, and that all the workers were taken prisoner in construction sites.
