Scores Arrested

In a joint statement, the organizations said that the arrests took place in the Bethlehem governorate, while the rest occurred in the governorates of Ramallah, Jenin, Hebron (Al Khalil), Nablus, Tubas, and Jerusalem.

More than 9, 465 Palestinians have been detained from the West Bank, including occupied Jerusalem, since the start of the ongoing Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip on October 7 last year.

Homes Demolished

The Israeli municipality of West Jerusalem demolished a house owned by Hamdan Seyam f in the occupied Jerusalem neighborhood of Wadi al-Joz, according to WAFA.

The report said occupation forces stormed the Wad al-Joz neighborhood and tore down the house while preventing journalists’ access to the site. All roads to the home were closed off.

Israeli forces also broke into a shop in the neighborhood and assaulted its owners, reported WAFA.

Israeli occupation forces also demolished a Palestinian-owned house in the village of Al-Jiftlik, north of Jericho, on Tuesday.

WAFA said the Israeli forces, accompanied by a bulldozer, stormed the village and began demolishing the house of Khalil Musa Jahalin, home to a family of ten.

Setter Incursions

Illegal Jewish settlers on Tuesday the Arab Mlihat Bedouin community, northwest of the city of Jericho, reported WAFA.

The supervisor of the Al-Baidar organization for defending the rights of Bedouins, Hassan Mlihat, said that about six settlers, on horseback, from the illegal settlement outposts adjacent to Mlihat Arab community in Al-Ma’rajat, stormed the community. They threatened its residents and demanded that they leave the area.

He said the Bedouin communities are witnessing a process of ethnic cleansing and forced displacement that threatens their lives and livelihood.

Last week, the Israeli government approved steps proposed by far-right Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich aimed at “legalizing” settlement outposts in the occupied West Bank and imposing sanctions on the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority.

Palestine has requested an extraordinary meeting of the Arab League to discuss Israel’s ongoing war on the Gaza Strip and settlement expansion in the West Bank.
