On Monday, illegal Israeli colonizers attacked a Palestinian family while picking olive trees in its orchard in the Khallet Hassan area in Biddya village, west of the central West Bank city of Salfit, wounding two Palestinians, including a child.

The WAFA Palestinian News Agency said the colonizers assaulted the family the Raed Abu Saif, 50, wounding him and his son, Arafat, 17, before Palestinian medics transferred the father and his son to a hospital in Salfit.

The colonizers also fired several rounds of live ammunition while trying to force the family out of its orchard.

Khallet Hassan, only 4000 Dunams, is subject to constant Israeli violations, especially since Israel is trying to build a new illegal colony to link it with five existing colonies and several colonialist outposts between the governorate of Salfit and Qalqilia.

Army Closes Archeological Area, Isolates 14 Palestinian Families, Near Nablus

Earlier Tuesday, Israeli soldiers invaded the al-Mas’udiyya archeological area in Burqa Palestinian town northwest of Nablus in the northern part of the occupied West Bank and isolated fourteen families.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian official who monitors Israel’s illegal colonialist activities in the northern West Bank, said the soldiers imposed a strict siege around Al-Mas’udiyya and the area of the nearby permanent military roadblock on the Main Nablus-Jenin Road.

Daghlas said fourteen Palestinian families living on their lands near Al-Mas’udiyya have been surrounded and isolated, unable to enter or leave the area.

The official also stated that illegal Israeli colonizers invaded the isolated area and installed many tents and sheds on the Palestinian lands in preparation for spending Jewish holidays there.

Al-Mas’udiyya is an archeological area visited by thousands of Palestinians around the year and has the remains of Ottoman-era railways that linked Haifa city with Jordan and Saudi Arabia at the time.

Israeli colonizers frequently invade the area after the soldiers isolate it to prevent the Palestinians from reaching it.

Detainees’ Committee: “50 Detainees Ongoing With Hunger Strike”

On Tuesday, the Palestinian Detainee’s Committee confirmed that fifty Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli prisons and detention camps are continuing the hunger strike despite the health deterioration of a few detainees.

Hasan Abed-Rabbu, the Committee’s spokesperson, said one of the detainees, Kanaan Kanaan, started the hunger strike seventeen days earlier and suffered a serious health setback, adding that he is vomiting blood and suffering from a serious weight loss, in addition to constant fatigue and pain.

Abed Rabbu added that the detainee remains held at the Ofer Israeli prison near Ramallah after the Prison Authority refused to transfer him to a hospital.

He also said the detainee in Nafha prison decided to return their meals in solidarity with the hunger-striking detainees.

On Sunday, twenty detainees joined the hunger strike that was started by thirty detainees seventeen days earlier, rejecting the illegal and arbitrary Administrative Detention policies, holding hundreds captive without charges or trial under repeatedly renewed orders.

The detainees are also ongoing with their boycott of Israel’s military courts, describing them as mock trials and biased against them.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli occupation authorities issued more than 9500 Administrative Detention orders since 2015, including about 1650 orders this year alone, among them 272 orders in August of this year, 2022.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) called for massive public solidarity with the detainees, demanding an end to the illegal policies keeping them held without charges, especially the repeatedly renewed orders, causing many to spend years in prison without charges or trial.

The PPS stated that the current number of Administrative Detainees exceeded 780, including at least six children and two women. Most of them are held at the Negev Detention Camp and Ofer prison.

The PPS said that approximately %80 of the Administrative Detainees were previously abducted and imprisoned many times.
