Israel detains 49 in large-scale West Bank arrest raids

June 20, 2014 3:43 P.M. (Updated: June 21, 2014 6:54 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 49 Palestinians overnight Thursday as a large-scale detention campaign continued in the occupied West Bank for the eight day.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society said Israeli forces raided dozens of homes across the West Bank, with reports of assaults and theft.

In Duheisha refugee camp, Ashraf al-Jaidi was detained after being assaulted and knocked unconscious, with his family claiming that Israeli soldiers stole 2,000 shekels ($580) from his wallet.

Most of those detained were ex-prisoners released in a 2011 swap deal, PPS said, with 20 Palestinians detained in Nablus, 12 in Bethlehem, seven in Hebron, four in Jerusalem, two in Tulkarem, two in Salfit and one from Jenin.

An Israeli army spokesman said that 25 Palestinians were detained as soldiers searched 200 locations across the West Bank. Since the beginning of the operation, 330 Palestinians have been detained, 240 of whom are affiliated to Hamas, he added.

The Israeli military has engaged in a wide spread search campaign for three missing Israelis that has morphed into a full assault on Hamas members across the West Bank.

Hundreds of thousands of residents in Hebron and Nablus have been subject severe restrictions on their freedom of movement, while Israeli forces have killed three Palestinians since the operation began.

PPS released a list of the detainees' names:
