Israeli forces detained four more Palestinians in the occupied West Banks cities of Hebron and Bethlehem in pre-dawn raids on Monday. Local sources said that a large number of the occupation forces entered Al-Aroub refugee camp in northern Hebron and detained two young men, one of them a minor. Their names were given as Na’eem al-Jaberi, aged 19, and Mohammed al-Adarbeh, 16.
Thaer Kawazba was also detained at his home in Sa’eer neighbourhood, to the north of Hebron, while in Al-Doheesha refugee camp to the south of Bethlehem, Israeli occupation forces also broke into the home of Hamed abu-Hameeda and took him away to an undisclosed destination.
To the west of Hebron, Israeli soldiers have been wandering around the streets of Idna for hours. No reason for the incursion has been given. In the north of the city, they erected a military checkpoint and have been stopping Palestinians cars and taxis.
Witnesses said that a team of cameramen accompanying the occupation soldiers is documenting everything, including the detentions.
All of the crossings from Israel to the Gaza Strip remain closed by Israel as part of its siege of the territory. The Israelis claim that rockets were fired from Gaza but nobody has claimed responsibility.
