Israeli forces raid lathing workshops in Qalqiliya

Aug. 1, 2016 6:52 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 1, 2016 6:52 P.M.)
QALQILIYA (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces, escorted by military vehicles and a crane, raided a number of lathing workshops in Qalqiliya early on Monday morning, locals said.

Israeli forces broke the doors, forcefully entered and searched at least two lathing workshops in Qalqiliya in the northern occupied West Bank, whose owners were identified as Ibrahim Shreem and Yousif Hamdan.

Israeli forces also reportedly confiscated equipment from a lathing workshop in Baqa, a town in the southern Qalqiliya district, and arrested its owner, Khalil Idris.

The Palestinian civil defense said that that Israeli forces also launched tear gas and sound bombs at a nearby house belonging to Mousa Sweilh, setting its balcony on fire.

Israeli forces reportedly prevented Palestinian civil defense crews from reaching the house and extinguishing the fire, with the Palestinian defense claiming that the soldiers also fired sound bombs at the fire truck.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that they were looking into the reports.

Israeli forces have raided a number of Palestinian workshops in past months, claiming that they were used to manufacture weapons.

According to prisoners’ rights group Addameer, 7,000 Palestinians were held in Israeli prisons as of May.
