NAZARETH, -The occupation police rounded up 120 workers in less than a week, the Palestinian prisoner's committee said in a report on Tuesday, adding that ten of them were held for interrogation while the rest were transferred back to the West Bank many of whom after paying fines.
Israeli occupation forces (IOF) have rounded up six Palestinians during raids in various West Bank areas at dawn Tuesday, local sources said, adding that they were detained in Tobas, Qalqilia, and Al-Khalil districts.
In a separate incident, three Palestinian citizens were moderately wounded Tuesday afternoon after they were hit by a speeding car boarded by an Israeli settler near the settlement of Efrat, south of Bethlehem.
Eyewitnesses told the PIC that the injured citizens were taken to a hospital in Al-Khalil, and one of them is still in a coma.
Israeli troops and settlers driving cars deliberately run over Palestinians during their presence in the vicinity of settlements or nearby roads.
