Israeli forces arrest 10 Palestinians in West Bank

Tehran, Jan 6, IRNA – Forces of the Zionist regime of Israel detained 10 Palestinians in the West Bank on Sunday and transferred them to an unknown place, media reports suggest.

According to Palestinian media Ma'an news agency, the Israeli regime has increased the number of closed-circuit television cameras and its inspection stations.

Israelis have reportedly arrested 5,700 Palestinians including 980 kids and 175 women in the previous year.

The Great March of Return rallies culminated on May 15 to mark what Palestinians refer to as the Nakba, or Catastrophe--a reference to the forced removal of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and villages to clear the way for Israel's establishment in 1948.

The mass Friday demonstrations have continued since.

Since the protests began on March 30, Israeli forces have killed at least 254 Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave and wounded about 26,000 people, according to health officials in Gaza.
