The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested 52 Palestinians in pre-dawn raids across the West Bank on Tuesday morning.
The arrests were accompanied by violent raid and search campaigns in Bethlehem, al-Khalil, and Nablus, Jenin, Salfit, Tulkarem, Ramallah, and Occupied Jerusalem.
The IOF arrested 17 Palestinians in Bethlehem and 11 others in al-Khalil.
11 more Palestinians were rounded up in Nablus, and six others in Jenin.
In Tulkarem, four youths were detained, including two ex-prisoners, while three others were kidnapped in Ramallah.
Since the start of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip, the IOF has escalated its arrest campaigns in the West Bank and Jerusalem, kidnapping 1215 Palestinians, including children, women, and elderly.
The data does not include the detention of citizens from Gaza and workers in 1948 occupied Palestine.
Since the start of the year, 6,500 Palestinians have been arrested in Israeli almost-daily raids in the West Bank towns and cities.
These arrests amount to a blatant infringement on people’s fundamental rights, including their freedom and sense of security, as well as their right to be free from torture and other cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment. The Israeli arrests also violate the right to personal freedom and the right to a fair trial, as detainees are held without legal evidence and valid judicial warrants.
