Israeli forces have abducted 15 Palestinians during separate attacks in East al-Quds (East Jerusalem) as well as the West Bank over the past two days.

According to local and security sources, Israeli army forces raided the West Bank village of Husan, west of Bethlehem, before Monday dawn and detained three Palestinians after breaking into and searching their homes.  

In a separate attack, Israeli forces raided the city of Nablus in the northern West Bank as well as the nearby Balata refugee camp, and detained two other people.  

Another Palestinian was also arrested at an Israeli army checkpoint near the village of Tell on Sunday night.

Several other Palestinians were also detained during Israel's raid on the city of Jenin and the nearby town of Jaba’.

Meanwhile in East al-Quds (East Jerusalem), Israeli police stormed a neighborhood and detained five local residents after raiding their homes.

Over the past few months, Israeli forces have frequently raided the houses of Palestinians in the West Bank and al-Quds, arresting dozens of them, and putting them behind bars on the so-called administrative detention policy.

The policy enables the Tel Aviv regime to keep Palestinians in jail without trial or charge for up to six months. The detention order can be renewed for an indefinite number of times.

Over 7,000 Palestinians are reportedly being detained in Israeli jails and detention camps without clear charges.
