Israeli Occupation's Brutal Routine: Nightly Raids, Boys Cuffed for Hours and Seized Jewelry

[Haaretz: 2 November 2017] - There's never a dull night in the village of Beit Ummar, where the Israeli army is a regular visitor. It’s the last street at the southern edge of the West Bank town of Beit Ummar, between Bethlehem and Hebron. The settlement of Karmei Tzur looms on the hill across the way. A street like any other: one- and two-story homes, potholes, no sidewalk. On this long road, which doesn’t even have a name and where grace does not abound, hardly a night goes by without a raid by the Israel Defense Forces. The troops swoop in four or five times a week, usually in the dead of night.
