The Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) continued incursions, raids and abductions of Palestinians on a daily basis in most parts of the Occupied West Bank at the rate of more than three incursions per day.

During the last week (between November 12 – 18), the IOF conducted at least 22 incursions into cities, towns and camps located in the West Bank, according to the records of the Palestinian Center for Human Rights in its recent weekly report issued Thursday, Nov. 19.

During its incursions, 32 Palestinian citizens were abducted by IOF, including four children, in addition to the abduction of eight other children, in Deir al-Ghusun town, north of Tulkarm, who were kidnapped while participating in a peaceful protest march against the construction of the expansionist Occupation Wall on their land.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights confirmed that the IOF “deliberately ill-treat Palestinian civilians, torture and terrorize them while breaking into their homes, cause material damages to contents, and destroy parts of the premises,” according to its report.

The center said that the Israeli Occupation Forces attacked, during the last week, a house in the town of Beit Omar, north of Hebron, forced its five residents to leave, and turned it into a military barracks after transferring their equipments to the roof where they hoisted the Israeli flag on it.
