Locals: Israeli forces detain 7 in Nablus refugee camp

Sept. 1, 2014 11:02 A.M. (Updated: Sept. 2, 2014 6:50 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided the al-Fara refugee camp in Nablus overnight and detained seven Palestinians, locals said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that 15 military jeeps and armored personnel carriers raided the camp from several directions and broke into dozens of houses.

The home of a senior official from the Palestinian People's Party, Muhammad Mansour, was raided and Israeli forces questioned him in the street and confiscated several flags from his house.

Ali Wakid, 45, his sons Imad, 26, and Ahmad, 22, Farouq Abu al-Hasan, 42, Muhmmad Salah Sawalma, 20, Asim Mansour Subih, 47, and Ismail Abu Atieh, 48, were detained during the raids.

Additionally, another Palestinian was arrested in the southern West Bank early Monday, a popular committee spokesman said.

Youssef Riyad Mahmoud Brigith, 18, was arrested at the entrance of al-Arrub refugee camp, Muhammad Awad said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said six Palestinians were arrested overnight -- three in the Bethlehem area, one north of Ramallah, one south of Hebron, and one in Nablus.

Israeli military forces routinely raid the occupied West Bank and arrest local Palestinians, often on the pretext of security questioning.
