Yesterday, occupation forces announced the detention of 19 Palestinians, claiming they were wanted due to their anti-occupation activities.

Israeli occupation forces carry out daily detention campaigns that include damaging property, stealing money and jewelry and beating old people and women when they try to prevent the detention of their sons.

Last month, Israeli occupation forces “severely” beat Palestinian Muhammad Al-Khatib when they raided  his home. He died as a result of the attack.
