Israeli forces have detained eight Palestinians in the West Bank overnight, eyewitnesses said.
According to the witnesses, an Israeli force stormed Hebron and detained four Palestinians from several areas of the southern province.
Three others were arrested in Al-Walaja village in the southern Bethlehem province, and another in Jenin in the north, they added.
There was no comment from the Palestinian government or the Israeli authorities on the detentions.
Israeli forces routinely conduct detention campaigns against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank on claims that they are "wanted" by Israeli authorities.
Some 7,000 Palestinians are currently languishing in prisons throughout Israel, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Prisoners' Affairs.Last Mod: 21 Eylül 2014, 12:42
