RAMALLAH, Palestine (AA) – Israeli forces rounded up 15 Palestinians in overnight raids carried out across the occupied West Bank, according to the military on Tuesday.

The individuals were arrested for “suspected involvement in terrorist activities “, the army said in a statement, adding that they had since been referred to relevant authorities for further investigation.

The Israeli army frequently carries out wide-ranging arrest campaigns across the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.

According to estimates, around 6,000 Palestinians are currently languishing in Israeli detention facilities, including women, children and a handful of lawmakers.
