The Israeli army detained 14 Palestinians in the West Bank's southern provinces of Hebron and Bethlehem on Sunday, a Palestinian NGO said.

"The Israeli army arrested 11 Palestinians from several areas around Hebron after raiding and searching their houses, claiming that they're wanted [for the Israeli authorities]," the Palestinian Prisoners' Club said in a statement.

Israeli troops also detained three youths from a town west of Bethlehem under the same pretext, a Bethlehem-based security source told The Anadolu Agency.

Meanwhile, the Israeli army said that four Hamas activists and four stone-throwers in the West Bank were arrested and transferred to detainment facilities for questioning.

Israeli forces routinely conduct detention campaigns against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank on claims that they are "wanted" by Israeli authorities.

Over 7,000 Palestinians are currently languishing in prisons throughout Israel, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Prisoners' Affairs.
