The Israeli army detained in the early hours of Tuesday nine Palestinians in several parts of the occupied West Bank, according to eyewitnesses and a local NGO.

Israeli army forces detained eight Palestinians from the West Bank towns near the cities of Hebron and Tulkarm, according to the Palestinian Prisoner Society.

One other Palestinian man has been detained near Ramallah, eyewitnesses told The Anadolu Agency.

Israeli authorities have yet to comment on the fresh detentions.

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

Over 7,000 Palestinians are currently languishing in prisons located throughout Israel, according to the Palestinian government.
