HEBRON, Israeli forces today detained three Palestinians from the West Bank district of Hebron and Tubas, according to security sources.
They said that Israeli forces rounded up a Palestinian after storming his house in Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.
They also rounded up another after ransacking his house in Yatta town, south of the city.
Meanwhile, the sources confirmed an Israeli military raid in the northern West Bank city of Tubas, resulting in the detention of another.
Israeli forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.
These raids, which take place also in areas under the full control of the Palestinian Authority, are conducted with no need for a search warrant, whenever and wherever the military chooses in keeping with its sweeping arbitrary powers.
Under Israeli military law army commanders have full executive, legislative and judicial authority over 3 million Palestinians living in the West Bank. Palestinians have no say in how this authority is exercised.
