Israeli occupation forces have conducted a series of arrests and home demolitions across the West Bank. On Wednesday, seven Palestinians were arrested in the Hebron governorate, southern West Bank.

According to security sources reported by the Palestinian news agency WAFA, Israeli forces raided the town of Yatta, south of Hebron, and arrested Anis Mohammed Abu Zahra, Ishaq Abu Ubaid, Jamil Awad, Sohaib Mohammed Mar, Ibrahim Hammad Zain, and his son Mohammed, after storming their homes and ransacking their contents.

In the town of Surif, northwest of Hebron, Israeli forces also arrested citizen Ihab Mohammed Abu Fara.

Al-Ghad's correspondent reported that the Israeli army arrested three brothers during a raid in Qalqilya, northern West Bank, following a house raid in the Shreim neighborhood amidst a large Israeli military presence.

In Tulkarem, the Israeli army launched raids around the vicinity of Palestine Technical University in the western part of the city and the towns of Faroun and Irtah to the south without reported arrests.

Additionally, the Israeli army conducted raids in the town of Jalamah, north of Jenin, and the towns of Ajja, Fahma, and Arraba, north and south of Jenin, leading to clashes and one reported arrest.

Israeli forces also demolished the home of prisoner Ahmed Dawabsheh after storming the town of Duma, south of Nablus, with a large force accompanied by engineering teams. Al-Ghad's correspondent noted that the army surrounded the house and began demolition with three military bulldozers, imposing a security cordon around the town and randomly firing tear gas, causing several cases of suffocation.

Ahmed Dawabsheh was arrested on April 22 of this year, accused of killing a settler south of Nablus after the settler went missing and was later found dead.
