IOF Kidnaps Several Palestinians across West Bank
By Staff, Agencies
The “Israeli” Occupation Forces [IOF] have kidnapped several Palestinians during raids in various areas across the occupied West Bank.
The Palestinian Information Center cited local sources as saying that the IOF detained six Palestinians in the West Bank city of Qalqilya on Sunday.
The kidnapped Palestinians were identified as Anas Salman, Mujahed Mardawi, Ahmed Odeh, Ali al-Jada, Anas Hassan Salman, and Hamza Mardawi.
Emad Shahin and Yousef Abu Nab were kidnapped in Wad Sa’ir, east of the West Bank city of al-Khalil [Hebron], and occupied al-Quds, respectively.
Three young men were also nabbed in the village of Deir Abu Da’if, east of the West Bank city of Jenin, during the early morning raids.
The “Israeli” troops stormed al-Bireh City on Sunday, sparking clashes with Palestinian residents which left two Palestinian teenagers injured.
They also stormed Jabel at-Taweel neighborhood in al-Bireh and raided several homes, but no detentions were reported.
The IOF frequently carries out wide-ranging kidnapping campaigns across the occupied West Bank under the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.
More than 7,000 Palestinians are reportedly held in "Israeli" jails. Hundreds have been incarcerated under the so-called administrative detention, which allows detaining Palestinians in Israeli prisons without trial or charge.
Some Palestinian prisoners have even been held in so-called “administrative detention” for up to eleven years.
In recent months, six Palestinian inmates have gone on hunger strike to protest of the “Israeli” entity’s illegal “administrative detention” policy.
Thousands of Palestinian prisoners on Sunday rejected meals in solidarity with the six fellow inmates.
