IOF Arrests 16 Palestinian Civilians in West Bank


The Israeli occupation forces arrested, in the past 24 hours, at least 16 Palestinian civilians in the occupied West Bank, including children and freed captives.

In a joint statement, Palestinian Commission of Detainees and Ex-Detainees Affairs and Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said that most of the arrests took place in the governorates of Ramallah, Qalqilya, Al-Khalil, Nablus, Bethlehem and Ariha, adding that these arrests were accompanied by widespread sabotage and destruction of Palestinians’ homes.

Since the beginning of the ongoing Israeli genocide on the Gaza Strip on Oct. 7, 2023, the number of arrests in the occupied West Bank has risen to at least 9,600, the statement added, indicating that these arrests included those who were arrested from homes or through military checkpoints, as well as those who were forced to surrender themselves under pressure, and those who were held hostage.

The IOF continues to implement systematic arrests, as one of its most prominent established policies, which
escalated in an unprecedented manner after Oct. 7, 2023, not only in terms of the level of the number of detainees, but also in terms of the level of crimes committed.
