In parallel with the war in the Gaza Strip, the Israeli army escalated its incursions into cities, towns and refugee camps in the West Bank.


A 9-year-old Palestinian child was injured by rubber-coated metal bullets on Monday during an Israeli military raid in the town of Kobar, northwest of Ramallah.

The official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported that several Israeli military vehicles stormed the town, raided a pharmacy there, and conducted an inspection operation inside it.

Moreover, Israeli occupation forces detained a number of citizens, interrogated them on the ground, and burned and tore up pictures of a number of the town’s martyrs.

The Red Crescent Society reported that its crews dealt with a child who was injured with a rubber bullet injury. The child was reportedly treated in the field.


An Israeli special force Monday detained a Palestinian youth from his commercial store in the center of Jericho.

The director of the Prisoner Club in Jericho, Eid Barahma, told WAFA that a special force stormed the city center and detained Muayyad Shaker Galaita from his shop. His brother had been detained two months earlier.

The special force also opened fire on electric bikes in the area, causing more than one bike to catch fire.

Detention Campaign

The Israeli army rounded up 25 more Palestinians in the occupied West Bank late Sunday, according to prisoners’ affairs groups.

The detention campaign took place in several areas in the occupied territory, including Jenin, Tulkarm, Qalqilya, Nablus, Ramallah, Jerusalem, Hebron, and Jericho, the Commission of Detainees Affairs and the Palestinian Prisoners Society said in a joint statement.

According to the statement, at least 6,195 Palestinians have been detained by the Israeli army in the occupied West Bank since October 7.
