JERUSALEM: Israeli authorities have arrested at least 35 Palestinians over the last few days in raids following a spike in violence ahead of upcoming Jewish holidays, officials said Thursday, reports AFP.
The arrests have occurred in annexed east Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank for reasons ranging from stolen property to suspicions of “terrorism.” Israeli police carried out raids in Issawiya and the Shuafat refugee camp in east Jerusalem over the last two days, arresting 23 people, they said.
“Police operations took place to locate and seize arms and weapons, finding suspects involved in terrorist activity, in riots and criminal activity,” a statement said.
