 Israeli forces detained  on Monday ten Palestinians from different parts of the West Bank, according to local and security sources.


Sources confirmed that Israeli forces rounded up five Palestinians in multiple raids across the southern West Bank district of Hebron.


One of prisoners was identified as a resident of Beit Ula town, northwest of Hebron, another as a citizn of Beit Ummar town, north of the city, another as a citezn of Deir al-'Asal town, west of the city, another as a resident of Yatta city and the other as a citezn of Sair town, northeast of the city.

In Bethlehem , Israeli military vehicles stormed Wadi Abu Freiha in Beit Sahour city, where soldiers arrested another and ransacked the family houses of two prisoners.

While, undercover Israeli forces  sneaked their way into Jaba‘ village, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, and abducted two Palestinians, including a security officer.

The soldiers launches a similar raid in Yabad town, west of Jenin city, as a result the re-arrest of two former prisoners.

They also barged their way into the nearby village of Rummana, broke into and thoroughly searched the houses of several villagers and seized the recordings of their surveillance cameras.

During ensuing confrontations, the soldiers opened fire towards local teens who protested the raid, causing a number to suffocate from tear gas.

In Nablus, Israeli forces forced their way into Kafr Qallil town, south of the city, where they ransacked two houses, turned them upside down and smashed the windshields of a house owner’s vehicle before withdrawing.

Israeli forces frequently stormed Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for "wanted" Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.

These arrests , 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 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.
