Israeli forces regularly raid homes in the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.
The heavy-handed operations, which are conducted without search warrants, often lead to clashes with armed residents.
Raids also take place in areas under the complete control of the Palestinian Authority.
