RAMALLAH, Israeli forces Friday overnight detained two Palestinians from the West Bank, according to local sources.
Israeli troops rounded up a 17-year-old Palestinian after ransacking his family house in the southern part of Hebron city.
Meanwhile, Israeli police rounded up a Palestinian in a raid in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya.
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.
