Israel rounds up 14 Palestinians in West Bank raids

There are roughly 5,700 Palestinians languishing in Israeli prisons

RAMALLAH: Israeli forces have detained 14 Palestinians in overnight raids carried out across the occupied West Bank, according to the Israeli military.

A military statement on Wednesday said the individuals had been arrested for “suspected involvement in popular terror activities”, without elaborating about the nature of these alleged activities.

The 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.
