RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided and searched some 70 houses in Yatta on Wednesday, injuring Palestinians Ashraf Nassar al-Shawwahin and detaining Muhammad Yassir Abdulrahman Murr.

Israeli military vehicles and soldiers searched the neighborhoods of Yatta, a town near Hebron, for more than four hours.

The mayor of Yatta condemned the continuous campaign against the residents and all Palestinian cities, which he called a “barbarian act.”

Moussa Makhamrah visited some of the houses that were raided and searched and called for a committee to “limit the damage of the campaign” and to aid owners of damaged houses.
