Israeli forces raid al-Duheisha refugee camp, seal shops

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided al-Duheisha refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem on Wednesday morning, when a number of shops were sealed for allegedly selling fire works, local sources said.

The Palestinian Prisoner's Society said that Israeli forces detained Bassam Ibrahim al-Salhi, the brother of Raed al-Salhi, who was shot, critically injured, and detained by Israeli forces during a raid into the camp last week.

Israeli soldiers ransacked several homes in the camp and delivered summons to several young men for them to be interrogated by Israeli intelligence services.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed to Ma’an that one Palestinian was detained in al-Duheisha.

Israeli raids in Palestinian towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, with a biweekly average of 95 search and detention raids carried out over the course of 2016, according to UN documentation.

In an earlier version of this report, Ma'an mistakenly reported that Raed al-Salhi was shot during the raid on Aug. 16. He had in fact been shot during a raid on Aug. 9, and later succumbed to his critical injuries on Sep. 3. Ma'an regrets this error.
