IOF detains 19 Palestinians, confiscates money in West Bank

Share This

Israeli occupation forces "IOF" last night and at Tuesday dawn carried out raids and arrests in various parts of the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.

The source said that the IOF detained 19 Palestinians and seized a large amount of money during raids launched in different areas of the West Bank.

The Israeli army said in a statement that its forces were able to arrest four Palestinians "accused of being involved in popular resistance activities against Israeli targets".

It claimed that the IOF soldiers found a homemade weapon in the Palestinian town of Atara, southwest of Jenin.

The statement noted that the Israeli soldiers confiscated tens of thousands of shekels, after raiding and searching homes of Palestinian citizens, for allegedly being used to fund resistance operations.

Under the Oslo Accords, the occupied West Bank was divided into three zones. Area A, making up some 18 percent of the West Bank, is officially under complete Palestinian Authority control. In Area B, the PA and Israel respectively hold administrative and military control, whereas Area C, constituting some 60 percent of the territory, is exclusively under Israeli military authority.

In practice, however, Israeli forces carry out regular incursions into Area A. Thus it commits a flagrant violation of the Convention.
