Israel Detains 33 Palestinian Civilians

Israeli soldiers have detained 33 Palestinian civilians during several overnight raids on West Bank cities and towns as well as a raid on a refugee camp.

The Israeli military raided the cities of Beit Lahm (Bethlehem) in the southern West Bank, the nearby town of Taqua, the northern city of Tubass, the nearby town of Qabatiya and the al-Far’a refugee camp late on Thursday.

In another incident in the northern West Bank settlement of Hashmonaim, 100 illegal settlers clashed with Israeli police forces when officers tried to demolish their illegally-built settlement units.

Police forces managed to demolish two units before settlers stopped them from leveling a third, Israeli media reported.

About 500,000 settlers live in the West Bank. All the settlements there are considered illegal by the international community.
