In Jenin, the Israeli occupation forces also detained a former prisoner at a flying military checkpoint placed near the city of Nablus, while in Tulkarm, three people, including two freed prisoners, were detained.
Additionally, the soldiers detained four people in the Hebron area.
Israeli forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians, triggering clashes with unarmed residents.
