RAMALLAH (Ma’an) – Israeli forces detained four Palestinians across the occupied West Bank between Wednesday night and Thursday, including a former Palestinian hunger striker who was recently released from Israeli prison, according to Palestinian and Israeli sources.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said in a statement that Israeli forces had detained former Palestinian prisoner of Israel and hunger striker Anas Shadid from the village of Dura in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

Shadid was released from prison a little more than a month ago after going on a 90-day hunger strike in protest of being held under administrative detention -- Israel’s policy of imprisonment without charge or trial.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed the detention in Dura.

Meanwhile, in the northern West Bank, PPS said that Israeli forces detained Amjad Jamal Milhem, 22, at an unspecified Israeli military checkpoint.

Israeli forces also detained Alaa Shahrour and Amir Shahrour from the Tulkrarem district while the two were visiting Jerusalem city.

Israeli raids in Palestinian towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

Israeli authorities carried out an average of 95 army raids a week in Palestinian communities since the beginning of the year, according to UN documentation.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, 6,200 Palestinians were being held in Israeli prison as of May.
