IMEMC & Agencies: On Thursday evening, Israeli soldiers concluded one of the largest invasions into Deir Samet village, southwest of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, with the arrest of one person, after the soldiers detained and interrogated dozens of Palestinians.

Local sources in the village told the Maan News Agency that the invasion was initiated by the army during the early dawn hours, Thursday, and lasted until late evening hours the same day.
The soldiers violently invaded homes, smashing their doors and searching the properties, causing excessive damage and terrifying the residents, especially the children.

Ma’an said the army even surrounded the local mosque and prevented worshipers from leaving it. Head of the Village Council said that the soldiers confiscated his phone and erased all photos he took of the invasion.

He added that the army interrogated dozens of Palestinians in their homes, and handed some of them military warrants ordering them to head to the Etzion military and security base for interrogation.

The army released the detained Palestinians after hours of interrogation, kidnapping one Palestinian identified as Munir Othman Awawda.
