Israeli forces raid refugee camp, ransack homes in search of weapons

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided the al-Arroub refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron early Friday morning, where they searched two Palestinian homes allegedly in search of weapons.

Locals told Ma’an that Israeli forces raided and searched two houses belonging to Wael and Fadi Jawabreh looking for weapons and confiscated cell phones from both homes. No detentions were reported.

An Israeli army spokesperson said they were looking into reports.

Israeli raids into Palestinian Authority-controlled towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Since the beginning of 2017, the United Nations documented a biweekly average of 87 Israeli military search and arrest operations into the West Bank.
