WEST BANK, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) rounded up Wednesday morning 12 Palestinians in the West Bank, among them five minors under age 18.

The IOF nabbed six boys, five of them under 18, at 2:30 a.m. in Azzoun village east of Qalqilya after patrolling the village and then raiding their parents’ homes and tampering with their property.

The IOF arrested two more young men after raiding several homes in Houssam west of Bethlehem in the southern West Bank after carrying out search raids on several homes.

The same day, Israeli authorities have transferred Waleed Khalid, director of the West Bank newspaper “Falastin”, to administrative detention for six months, claiming that he poses a threat to the Israeli state.

Khalid has spent a total of around 16 years in Israeli prisons and solitary confinement.
