West Bank: 51 Palestinians arrested, Israel scared of missiles

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — While the whole world has focused on Aramco and the Yemeni attack that took place right in the heart of the West Bank on September 14, there is a war going on in the true sense of the word.

On Sunday, September 23, the Israeli regime cut power in the West Bank while preserving Israeli settlements. Usually, the power cut caused by Israel to disrupt the activity of hospitals, health centers, or water distribution networks, but this time, the Israeli decision went further.

Israel is afraid to see the West Bank, already converted to armed struggle with the commando operations of July and August to develop missiles. DEBKAfile, a site linked to the intelligence community of the Israeli army, talks about it in one of these last editions.

To believe it, a cell linked to the Palestinian resistance would have been discovered in the West Bank, charged with “creating missile bases”. Whether this information is true or false, it is the same: Israel faces a new challenge. Hence the panic that has taken hold of the Israeli army.

51 Palestinians were arrested on Monday 23 September across the West Bank and Quds. Israeli soldiers stormed homes of Palestinians suspected of involvement in “sabotage”. In total, 51 Palestinians were arrested. A woman and children with an 11-year-old boy among the detainees.

In the field, the clashes are intense. Eight Palestinians were injured in clashes between Palestinian youth protesters and Israeli soldiers in al-Bireh, West Bank. The Zionist military used tear gas and stun grenades to disperse the protesters.

At the pace of events, the Israeli regime, largely entangled in an unprecedented electoral crisis, will have much to do in the West Bank and Quds. 6,500 Palestinians including 230 children and about 50 women are in Israeli jails. 1,800 patients are among the prisoners.

During the first half of summer 2019, 420 Palestinians including 62 children and 10 women were arrested by the Israeli military. This is more than enough for knives in the West Bank to give way to missiles, says an expert on the issue.
