Israeli forces, on Thursday evening, detained five Palestinians from the northern districts of Nablus and Qalqilia, in the occupied West Bank.
Local Fatah official, Munir Gaghoub, stated that Israeli troops abducted three Palestinians, including a former prisoner, seized a vehicle at the entrance of Beita town, south of the city of Nablus, Palestinian WAFA News Agency reported.
Witnesses said that the military detained at least two other Palestinians, including a minor, near Israel’s apartheid wall, built on lands confiscated from Kufur Qaddoum village, in the Qalqilia district.
Israeli forces commit daily incursions into Palestinian towns and villages, as a matter of policy, with the goal of arresting so-called “wanted” Palestinians across the occupied West Bank.
These arbitrary arrest campaigns are a regular occurrence for Palestinian civilians in the West Bank, and 5,000 Palestinian prisoners remain incarcerated in Israeli prisons, including 183 minors.
