IOF detain Palestinian workers from occupied West Bank

January 24, 2022

The Israeli occupation forces detained last night a number of Palestinian workers in the occupied West Bank.

The Prisoners' Information Office stated that the Israeli occupation forces detained Ikrima Kanaan and Qusay Salah Khaliliah, from Jaba', south of Jenin, in the northern occupied West Bank.

Additionally, they detained the liberated detainee, Barakat Fayez Al-Khawaja, from Ni’lin, west of Ramallah, Asim Elias Abu Eisha, and the teacher, Zayed Ismail Al-Awadeh, from al-Khalil.

The Prisoners Information Office also reported that the occupation forces detained dozens of workers who were passing through holes in the apartheid separation wall near Qalqilya.

To build the wall, large tracts of Palestinian land have been seized by the Israeli occupation.

The Israeli Information Centre for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories (B’Tselem) said that the construction of the wall caused “unnecessary suffering” to the Palestinian people. It “cut social ties and isolated villages from their farmland and citizens from their livelihoods,” the organisation said.
