Israeli occupation forces detained 2 Palestinians in Jerusalem during raids last night, according to local sources.
The Israeli army often raids Palestinian homes across the occupied West Bank. These raids also take place in Area C, which is under Israel’s complete control. Raids are done without a search warrant and whenever and wherever the military chooses to do so.
Israel has occupied the West Bank illegally since 1967, and commits various abuses against Palestinian civilians, human rights groups say.
More than 600,000 Israeli Jews live in settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, in constructions considered illegal under international law.
The Oslo agreement of 1995 divided the occupied West Bank into three: Area A, Area B and Area C.
Area A is under the administrative and security control of the Palestinian Authority (PA). Area B’s administration is controlled by the PA, with Israel controlling security. Area C is under full administrative and security control of Israel.
