Israeli forces carry out raids across West Bank, detain 12

03:00 Apr 12 2016 Qalandiya, Beit Fajjar, Bethlehem, Sailfit and Tulkarem districts

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 12 Palestinians during predawn raids throughout the occupied West Bank early Tuesday, including from areas under full Palestinian jurisdiction, locals said.

Locals told Ma’an that three residents of Qalandiya refugee camp near Ramallah were detained. The detainees were identified as Raed Fayiz -- head of Qalandiya Youth Center -- Muhammad Eid Badran, and Nidal Ahmad Ziyad.

Four Palestinians were detained from the Bethlehem district, including Usama Ibrahim Deiriyeh, Issam Abdullah Taqatqa, and Adel Mahmoud Deiriyeh from Beit Fajjar village.

Israeli forces raided Bethlehem City, under Area A and under full jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority, and detained Ibrahim al-Shuruf.

The forces also detained Abdullah Rashid Mawqadi, a dentist from Salfit, and Amin Bassam Khweiled from Tulkarem.

An Israeli spokesperson told Ma’an 12 were detained in total during the raids, citing “suspected illegal activity.”

Around 7,000 Palestinians are currently held in Israeli prisons, many of whom are held under arbitrary detention in violation of international law, according to prisoners’ rights group Addameer.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas earlier this month slammed the Israeli military for continuing incursions into areas of the occupied West Bank under Palestinian jurisdiction, on the grounds that the move is in direct contradiction to the Oslo agreements.
