Palestine: Israeli army arrests 26 Palestinians in overnight raids

By Anees Bargouthi

RAMALLAH, (AA): The Israeli army detained 26 Palestinians in overnight raids in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, a Palestinian NGO said on Wednesday.

“Israeli army forces detained 11 Palestinians after raiding their homes near Salfit city in the northern West Bank,” Qadora Faris, head of the Palestinian Prisoners Society, told Anadolu Agency.

“Nine other Palestinians were arrested from the central and southern West Bank cities of Ramallah, Betlehem and al-Khalil (Hebron),” he added.

According to Faris, the Israeli army also arrested six Palestinians from occupied East Jerusalem.

The Israeli army frequently carries out sweeping arrest campaigns targeting “wanted” Palestinians in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Currently, over 7,000 Palestinians are languishing in prisons throughout Israel, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Prisoners’ Affairs.
