Israeli troops arrest 8 Palestinians in West Bank

RAMALLAH, Israeli occupation forces detained eight Palestinians during overnight raids in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, the Palestinian Society Prisoner’s Club (PPSMO) said on Thursday.

“Wa’ad Tamimi, brother of Palestinian resistance icon Ahed Tamimi, was arrested from his house in the village of Nabi Saleh north of the West Bank city of Ramallah,” it said.

Two Palestinians were arrested in the city of Bethlehem while another three were arrested in Jenin and Jericho, PPSMO added.

The Israeli army frequently conducts wide-ranging arrest campaigns in the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.
