Israeli army forces conducted overnight raids across West Bank, where they arrested 13 Palestinians.

In a Thursday statement, the army said that the 13 individuals had been detained for “suspected involvement in popular terrorist activities”.

It did not elaborate on the nature of said activities.

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

An estimated 5,700 Palestinians, including a number of women and children, are currently languishing in Israeli detention facilities.
