The Israeli police arrested 18 Palestinian female workers under the pretext that they were working in Nazareth without obtaining entry and work permits in Israel.

The workers were detained after the Israeli police raided a Sewing factory in Nazareth.
All detained workers were transferred to an Israeli court in Afula, and the court imposed high fines on them.
Palestinian workers, devastated by closures and Israeli restrictions, are facing ongoing Israeli attacks and hundreds were detained and fined for working in Israel ‘without obtaining the needed permits’.
