Israel arrests 24 Palestinians in new wave of raids

Ramallah, Dec 15 (Prensa Latina) Israeli troops arrested today 24 Palestinians during several operations in the occupied West Bank, where tension continues to increase due to Tel Aviv's military repression.

Palestinian security sources told the official news agency WAFA that the uniformed soldiers arrested 16 people in the village of Beit Ummar, located in the southern West Bank, among them, three teenagers aged 15, 16 and 17.

During the arrest of one of the youths, the soldiers assaulted his father, who was taken to a nearby hospital, WAFA reported.

Uniformed soldiers also attacked the village of Beitunia, west of Beitunia, and the Askar refugee camp near the northern city of Nablus.

In Askar two residents were brutally beaten, reported the Palestinian Medical Relief Society. As part of the raids they also searched homes in the village of Al-Mudawwar, near Qalqilia, where they caught one person, and another in the town of Yabad, south of Jenin.

Israeli forces attack Palestinian homes almost daily under the pretext of arresting people without search warrants, leading to clashes with residents, WAFA stressed.

The source criticized the powers of Israeli military chiefs over the lives of the more than three million Palestinians living in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

According to various informations, about 4,760 Palestinians are currently held in prisons in the neighboring nation, including 160 children and 33 women.

A 2017 report by the human rights advocacy organization, Addameer, revealed that in 50 years Israel arrested more than 800,000 Palestinians, although the number is currently around one million.
