In the early hours of Wednesday morning, at least 12 Palestinians, including children and former detainees, were arrested across the occupied West Bank, WAFA said, citing the Commission of the Detainees and the Ex-detainees Affairs and the Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

The majority of the detainees were from the West Bank district of Hebron (Al Khalil) and the others were from the West Bank districts of Tulkarm, Qalqiliya, Jenin, Ramallah, and Tubas.

The prisoner organizations said that as part of the raids, the occupation forces usually inflicted torture and beatings of detainees, and also destroyed Palestinian property and confiscated cash savings on a large scale, reported WAFA.
