Israel arrests 17 Palestinians in West Bank

World Bulletin / News Desk

The Israeli army on Wednesday arrested 17 Palestinians from the two West Bank provinces of Al-Khalil (Hebron) and Nablus, saying they were wanted by Israeli authorities for a number of charges.

According to a statement by the Palestinian Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), Israeli army troops arrested 13 Palestinians during a raid in Al-Khalil in the southern West Bank.

Four more Palestinians were arrested in additional raids carried out in several towns of the Nablus province.

Israeli forces, claiming they are looking for "wanted" Palestinians, stage daily raids into the occupied West Bank.

Meanwhile, the Israeli army deployed troops along several roads in the West Bank in anticipation of an angry Palestinian reaction to Tuesday's killing of three Palestinians near Hebron.

The Israeli army has claimed that the trio belonged to a jihadi group that had been planning to carry out terrorist attacks on both Palestinian and Israeli targets.
