Ahmed Beitawi, a researcher at the foundation, said that the IOF escalated recently its raid and arrest campaigns against refugee camps aiming at dragging the camps into confrontations.

The occupation aims to exploit the possible Palestinian response as an opportunity to achieve internal political victories and to justify its crimes that escalated recently despite talks’ resumption, he said.

Beitawi added that ten Palestinians from West Bank refugee camps were killed since the beginning of the year, most recently was the martyr Islam Tobasi who was shot dead yesterday.

The occupation aims at draining the refugee camps in order to prevent any possible outbreak of a new uprising, he noted.

He pointed to Commander of the Israeli Central Command Maj.-Gen. Nitzan Alon’s statements, published in Yediot Ahranot Hebrew newspaper, where he warned that “more and more areas in refugee camps in Jenin, Qalandiya and near Nablus were becoming havens for Palestinian terrorists.”

“They want to limit our operational freedom, and we want to prevent this. We cannot allow a situation whereby the Palestinian terrorists have safe places where they can get organized and use as bases from which they leave to carry out terror attacks,” he added.
