SALFIT (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces raided the home of the head of the Palestinian public prosecutor's office before dawn on Thursday in the village of Jammain in the occupied West Bank district of Salfit.

Ahmad Hannoun said that he was very surprised when Israeli forces cut off the electricity and raided his home at 2 a.m.

Hannoun added that he was forced to let the Israeli troops inside his house after they threatened to blow up his front door.

Once inside, one of the Israeli soldiers introduced himself as Officer Atta. The Israeli forces left the house without searching it or stating the reason of the raid, causing fear among Hannoun’s family members, including children, the Palestinian official said.

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

Israeli forces carry out detention raids in Palestinian communities on a near-nightly basis, with the UN documenting 169 such raids from Oct. 18 to Oct. 31.

Rights groups have claimed that Israel uses imprisonment or threats of imprisonment as an attempt to disrupt Palestinian political and social processes, notably targeting Palestinian politicians, activists, and journalists.
