    Israel detains 13 Palestinians in West Bank raids

    Israeli forces rounded up 13 Palestinians in overnight raids carried out across the occupied West Bank, according to the Israeli military.

    A Thursday statement read that the individuals had been arrested for “suspected involvement in popular hostile activities”, without elaborating about the nature of these alleged activities.

    Israeli army carries out frequent arrest campaigns across the West Bank — including occupied East Jerusalem — on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.

    According to Palestinian figures, roughly 5,700 Palestinians — including numerous women and children — are currently languishing in Israeli detention facilities.
