AT LEAST 20 Palestinians were detained in Israeli military operations across the occupied territories in the early hours this morning, according to local reports.
House raids took place in Bethlehem while Israeli forces detained two Palestinians in the West Bank district of Hebron.
The Jenin refugee camp, which has been a target for Israeli military operations, was stormed by soldiers with at lest one house ransacked as they detained one person.
Israeli special forces entered the village of Dura al-Qari, north-east of Ramallah, where they kidnapped eight Palestinians, seven of which were students at Birzeit University where elections were held today.
The raids came just a day after 70 Palestinian mourners were injured following an Israeli police attack on a funeral procession held for Walid al-Sharif, who died on Saturday after he was wounded at the al-Aqsa mosque last month.
Rubber-coated bullets were fired at the Palestinians while police lobbed tear gas canisters as they made their way to the cemetery.
Israeli police said its forces “acted resolutely against hundreds of lawbreakers” they accused of rioting.
But Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s office accused the Jerusalem police of a “cruel and barbaric act.”
It follows a similar attack on the funeral of Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh last week
