The Israeli army has detained 14 Palestinians in overnight raids in the West Bank, the military said Thursday.
The army said on Twitter that the detainees were suspected of taking part in riots and committing "acts of terror" against Israeli civilians and security forces in the West Bank.
The Israeli army did not say where exactly the arrests were made.
However, eyewitnesses told The Anadolu Agency that Israeli army troops detained several Palestinians in Nablus and Al-Khalil after raiding their homes.
Israeli forces routinely round up groups of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank on claims they are "wanted" by the Israeli authorities.
Over 7,000 Palestinians are currently languishing in Israeli prisons, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Prisoners' Affairs.
