JENIN, Israeli forces Tuesday detained at least eight Palestinians during multiple overnight raids across the West Bank, said Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS).
Israeli forces raided Meithalun town, south of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, detaining two former prisoners.
They also detained a Palestinian after ransacking his family home in Jalqamus village, southeast of Jenin.
Meanwhile, Israeli troops conducted a raid into Tulkarem city, detaining two Palestinians, including a former prisoner.
Another Palestinian was detained during a similar predawn raid into Abu Dis town, south of Jerusalem.
Elsewhere in Jerusalem district, police detained a Palestinian after brutally assaulting him from Hizma neighborhood.
In the southern West Bank, forces detained a Palestinian from Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron.
Israeli forces conduct overnight detention raids almost on a daily basis across the West Bank, triggering clashes with residents.
Clashes often erupt between Palestinian youth who attempt to block soldiers’ passage, throwing stones and empty bottles and are met with live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters, often resulting in serious, sometimes fatal, injuries.
