RAMALLAH — Israeli occupation forces on Tuesday prevented Palestinian farmers north of the West Bank city of Nablus from picking their olives, drove them out of their lands, according to Ghassan Douglas, a Palestinian official in charge of the settlement file in the northern part of the West Bank, and arrested 19 Palestinians in different parts of the West Bank and the occupied city of Jerusalem, said the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club.

The Palestinian Prisoners' Club said in a statement that Israeli occupation troops stormed the West Bank cities of Hebron, Bethlehem, Jenin and Nablus as well as neighbourhoods of the occupied city of Jerusalem and arrested the citizens.

The citizens were detained under the pretext they are wanted by the occupation authorities, the statement added.
