Israel/Palestine: Lawyer among seven Palestinians detained from West Bank

March 18, 2019

Israeli forces detained at least seven Palestinians, including a lawyer, in multiple overnight raids across the West Bank, said the Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

Israeli military vehicles raided the northern West Bank city of Jenin, where soldiers detained three Palestinians after storming their families’ houses.

PPS confirmed that Israeli forces detained two Palestinians, including a lawyer, from the northern West Bank district on Nablus.

In the southern West Bank, PPS confirmed that two Palestinians were rounded up from Bethlehem district.

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 residents.

These raids, which take place also in areas under the full control of the Palestinian Authority, are conducted with no need for a search warrant, whenever and wherever the military chooses in keeping with its sweeping arbitrary powers.
