 Israeli army troops on Monday detained eight Palestinians from several West Bank provinces, according to a Palestinian security source.

"The Israeli army raided the West Bank provinces of Ramallah and Hebron and detained eight young men under the pretext that they are wanted by the [Israeli] police," the source told The Anadolu Agency on the condition of anonymity.

"Three of them were detained in Ramallah, in addition to one in the adjacent city of Al-Bireh and two others from the nearby village of Qarawat Bani Zeid," the source said.

"In Hebron, Israeli troops detained two young Palestinians in the town of Sair after raiding and searching their houses to allegedly look for weapons," the source added.

Several Palestinian towns were also raided early Monday by Israeli troops who conducted searches in a number of homes and shops.

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

Nearly 7,000 Palestinians are detained in Israeli prisons, according to the Palestinian Prisoners' Society NGO.
