May 31, 2021


Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested on Sunday night and at dawn 
Monday several citizens, including released prisoners, in various areas 
of the West Bank and Jerusalem.

In al-Khalil, IOF arrested the ex-prisoner, Baha Zahdeh, 41, after 
raiding his home in the Al-Haraiq area and searching many houses for the 
Zahida and Dais families.

IOF arrested the released prisoner, Ismail Al-Nattah, after storming his 
home in Idna town, west of Hebron. Nattah was released from the Israeli 
prisons only two months ago.

The IOF soldiers also raided several neighborhoods in Hebron and set up 
military checkpoints at the entrances to the towns of Sa`ir and Halhul 
and at the northern entrance to the city. Citizens’ vehicles were 
searched and their ID cards were checked.

In Bethlehem, IOF arrested the boy Hamza Al-Harimi, 17, after storming 
his family’s house in the Wadi Maali area, searching it and tampering 
with its contents.

In Ramallah, IOF arrested Muhammad Atta and the ex-prisoner, Mahmoud 
Safi, during a raid of the village of Deir Abu Mishaal, west of Ramallah.

The IOF soldiers arrested Omar Abu Ruwais and Muhammad Abu Ghazaleh 
after storming Al-Amari refugee camp near the city of Al-Bireh.

In Nablus, IOF arrested Abdel Rahman Dashon after raiding and searching 
his house.

A large number of the IOF soldiers broke into Burin village, south of 
Nablus, and Aqraba town, southeast of the city, and searched the home of 
Riad Lafi.

Meanwhile, Yusef Khatatbeh, 40, from Khirbet Tana in Beit Furik town, 
east of Nablus, was wounded after settlers attacked him.

In Occupied Jerusalem and its suburbs, the Israeli police arrested 
Abdullah al-Sayyad from al-Tur village and Jamal Abu Khdeir from 
Shu’fat, north of the city.

Security cameras in Ar’ara village, in northern 1948 occupied 
Palestine (Israel), documented the violent assault by the Israeli police 
against citizens.

The police also carried out a massive arrest campaign in the village of 
Kafr Kanna.

Local sources said that the Israeli police have arrested six young men, 
including the wounded, Wajdi Hamdan, amid the ongoing campaign of 
arrests in the village.

The Arab Emergency Committee in the 1948 occupied territories said that 
it had monitored more than 2,200 arrests and 300 cases of attacks on 
Arab residents or their property during the recent events.

It pointed out that since the beginning of the so-called Law and Order 
campaign, almost 100 Arab citizens are being arrested every day.
