In order to find Palestinian employees inside the 48 areas, the Israeli occupation police and the so-called “Border Guard” unit started a campaign.
The occupation police detained 284 employees as well as 78 people who were allegedly involved in hiring, transporting, and housing workers.
The occupation police stepped up their operations by conducting raids in interior towns, particularly those in the Triangle and the Negev region, as well as in communities along the Fourth of June border and following Palestinian employees from the West Bank.
In addition, according to a statement from the occupation police, “the border guards carried out a special campaign during the past week, claiming to prevent the entry of Palestinian workers who do not have entry and work permits to Israel.”
According to the announcement of the occupation police, 284 Palestinians who entered Israel without authorization were detained during the activities of the border guards, and 78 suspicions of providing transportation, travel, accommodation, and employment for Palestinians were also detained.
The occupying forces detained 40 persons under the guise of moving them or offering them somewhere to shelter while 124 Palestinians were detained in the Jerusalem region during the pursuit of labour.
