Israel Detains 15 Palestinians in West Bank

Israeli soldiers have arrested fifteen Palestinians in pre-dawn raids in a number of occupied West Bank towns.

According to the Palestinian Information Center, those detained in the Tuesday overnight operations were from the cities of Jenin, Bethlehem, and Qalqilyah.

A large number of Israeli troops cordoned off and ransacked the residents’ houses in pursuit of key documents. The Palestinians were taken to military detention camps to be questioned.

The Israeli army regularly arrests Palestinians during overnight operations in West Bank towns.

However, the detentions are in flagrant violation of a security agreement with the Palestinian Authority.

Tel Aviv claims that the people arrested in the raids are ‘wanted activists’ and have been taken for interrogation.

More than 11,500 Palestinians, including women and children, are currently imprisoned in Israeli detention facilities, suffering harsh and life-threatening conditions.
