In Occupied Jerusalem; the occupation forces arrested the two young men Nihad and Imad Al-Abbasi from Silwan town, south of Aqsa Mosque.
In Nablus, the Israeli forces arrested 9 Palestinians, including: the two brothers Muhammad and Yazan al-Tanbour, Muhammad Ali Badrasawi, Akram Abu Zaytoun, Akram Diab, Mustafa Ahmed Shabeer Murad Saleh Issa, Wahid Ghassab Jabara, Thamin Turki Hamdan.
The Israeli forces also arrested two young sisters, Iman and Nisreen Eid Khamis after they tried to save their brother from a settler attack.

The ex-prisoner Abdel Basset Ibrahim Abu Al-Ezz was also detained in Tulkarem.

The Israeli forces also arrested the two young men, Hassan Abu Haniyeh and Yahya Abu Haniyeh, from the town of Azzun in Qalqilia.

The Israeli occupation army regularly conducts raid, search, and arrest operations in Palestinian towns across the West Bank, which have intensified this year with Palestinians arrested on a near-daily basis.
4,900 Palestinians are currently held in Israeli jails, including 28 women.
The right to liberty and personal security, among other fundamental human rights, are flagrantly violated by these arbitrary arrests. Detainees are held without proper justification or valid judicial warrants, infringing on their rights to personal freedom and a fair trial.
These violations highlight the urgent need for international intervention to ensure human rights are respected.
