Israeli police detained a Palestinian youth in East Jerusalem on Tuesday for allegedly planning an attack on Israelis.

Police said on Twitter that the Palestinian had been detained at the Shaafat checkpoint for plotting a "terrorist attack" on civilians and security forces.

Earlier Tuesday, Israeli army forces detained 12 Palestinians in raids carried out in the occupied West Bank.

Israel routinely rounds up Palestinians in the West Bank on claims they are "wanted" by Israeli authorities.

Over 7,000 Palestinians are currently languishing in prisons located throughout the self-proclaimed Jewish state, according to the Palestinian Ministry for Prisoners' Affairs.
