The Israeli army early Monday detained 17 Palestinians in a series of raids in different parts of the West Bank, eyewitnesses said.

Israeli troops raided homes – several of which were also ransacked – in the West Bank cities of Nablus and Hebron and in some neighborhoods of Al-Quds (East Jerusalem), eyewitnesses said.

Eyewitnesses added that Israeli security forces had detained six Palestinians from Nablus and eight others from Hebron, all of whom were taken to undisclosed locations.

The Israeli army also detained three Palestinians from Al-Quds and took them to the city's Russian Compound district for interrogation, according to the eyewitnesses.

The Israeli army has yet to issue an official statement on Monday's raids.

Israel sporadically raids Palestinian homes in the West Bank and detains local Palestinians, claiming the latter are "wanted" by Israeli security agencies.
