HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained 58 Palestinians in the occupied West Bank overnight Wednesday, including several minors, and 26 in East Jerusalem in arrest raids across the occupied territories.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli troops raided the city of Hebron and detained Muhammad Ahmad Abdul-Fattah abu Fanouna, Tayseer Taleb Abu Sneineh, Yahia Zughaier, and Fadi Muhammad Srour.

In the nearby village of Dura, detainees were identified as Mahmoud al-Talahma, the brother of Diaa al-Talahma, Musa Maher Abu Sharar, and Muhammad Shaher Namour.

In the Hebron-area village of Beit Ula, troops detained Diaa al-Amleh as well as Musab Adnan Muhammad Barakat Manasra from Bani Naim.

Israeli forces also raided the village of Beit Ummar and ransacked several homes before detaining Ahmad Issa Ali Safi al-Sleibi,19, Alaa Jihad Ali Sabarneh,17, Waseem Ibrahim Muhammad Bahar,16, Muhamamd Jawdat Nadi Adi,15, and Ibrahim Yousif Khalid Murshid Sabarnah,15, according to Muhammad Awwad Awad, a spokesman of the popular local committee against settlements in the town.

In the Jenin area, Israeli forces detained Anas Sam Qaqour and Abdul-Jabbar Jarrar after ransacking their homes. In the al-Seela al-Harethiya neighborhood, Israeli troops detained a former prisoner, Shareef Tahir Tahayna, 46, and Salman Khalid Halawa, 39, from Beit Qad village.

Ten Palestinians were detained from the towns of Tell and Sebastiya nearby Nablus, where Israeli forces raided the homes of Adnan abdul-Fattah Asida and Muhammad Bilal Saleh Ishtya.

Palestinian security sources in the city of Nablus told Ma’an that Israeli troops raided several neighborhoods including al-Jabal al-Shamali, al Maajin, al-Makhfiya, and al-Masakin al-Sahbiya.

Nablus-area detainees were identified as Musab Tawfik Hneidi, Mahmoud Nimer Asida, and Muath Bilal Ishtaya, Abdul-Rauf Muhammad HAwari, Moenis Imad al-Din Muhammad al-Haj, Lutfi Lutfi, Ahmad Yousif Awwad, Muhmmad al-Minawi, Ala Humidan, and Abbas Fatayer.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed 58 Palestinians detained from areas throughout the West Bank, 16 of whom were detained for being suspected "Hamas operatives" and 26 for involvement in "illegal activities."

Israeli forces detained 26 Palestinians from across occupied East Jerusalem, while clashes broke out in al-Issawiya, leaving one Palestinian injured.

Forces raided the Palestinian neighborhoods of al-Sawana, Silwan, Jabal al-Mukabbir, and al-Issawiya, entering several homes and bringing detainees to Oz police station in Jabal al-Mukkabir.

While Israel has carried out a weekly average of 78 search and arrest raids of Palestinian towns in the occupied Palestinian territory, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, such raids have significantly increased this month.

The campaigns are a part of alleged efforts by Israeli authorities to "deescalate" current tensions in the area, measures that Palestinian ambassador to the UN, Riyad Mansour, referred to last week as "repression and collective punishment."

What the Palestinians need to do instead of going to the streets and getting the risk of getting shot which is exactly what Netanyahu wants getting him angry, beat him in his game just stay home, do your daily routine. That will get him so mad without firing a single shot.
