The Palestinian Prisoner's Club Association said that Israeli army forces stormed dozens of houses in the West Bank cities of Ramallah, Jenin, Nablus and Hebron.

This NGO also denounced that 20 Palestinians were arrested from their homes, including ex-Palestinian detainees and members of Hamas and the Islamic Jihad.

Hamas spokesman in Gaza Abdulatif Al-Qanou'a said that arresting Hamas and Islamic Jihad members "is condemned," adding that "it's a desperate attempt to undermine the will of the Palestinian people."

“Resistance in the occupied West Bank will not stop,” Hisham Qassem, a senior official in the Hamas political bureau said on Wednesday, as reported by the Middle East Monitor.

"The Hamas official stressed the legitimate right of the Palestinian people to resist Israel’s military occupation of Palestine," it added.

Since January, over 200 Palestinians, including children and women, were killed by Israeli soldiers and settlers, according to official figures.
