Israeli forces detain 50 Palestinians in Nur-Shams raid: Palestinian Prisoners Society

Israeli forces detained 50 Palestinians, including some who were wounded, during its three-day raid on Nur-Shams refugee camp, the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said in a statement.

The group said the majority of the detainees have now been released, many bearing the marks of torture.

Detainees were reportedly beaten, stripped naked, and tortured with shackles. According to PPS, Israeli forces also threatened to shoot them.

The Tulkarm Governorate and its two camps, Nur-Shams and Tulkarm, have been subject to several Israeli incursions since October.

According to PPS, more than 500 people were detained during these raids, including women, children and the elderly, with over 100 people detained from Nur-Shams camp alone.
