Earlier today, The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) stated that the IOF arrested at least 30 citizens from the West Bank in the past two days.

The arrests were focused in Nur Shams Refugee Camp in the governorate of Tulkarm, where the IOF made 15 arrests in the area.

This brings the total number of arrests since Oct. 7, 2023 to approximately 8,340 according to the PPS.

It added that these arrest campaigns carried out by the IOF are part of a “systematic policy employed by the Occupying forces and serve as a central tool in targeting civilians” amid the aggression currently being carried out against the Gaza Strip.
