Israeli forces rounded up ten Palestinians in overnight raids carried out across the occupied West Bank, according to the military on Monday, Anadolu Agency reports.

A military statement said the individuals had been arrested for “suspected involvement in popular violent 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.
