RAMALLAH, 12 July 2018 [Fik/News Sources]: Israeli forces detained seven Palestinians in overnight raids carried out across the occupied West Bank, the Israeli military said Thursday.
The individuals were arrested for “suspected involvement in popular terrorist activities”, the army said in a statement without elaborating on the nature of said activities.
The detainees have since been remanded into custody for further investigation, it added.
According to Palestinian figures, approximately 6,500 Palestinians are currently languishing in Israeli prisons, including scores of women and some 350 minors.
The Israeli army frequently carries out sweeping arrest campaigns across the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.
