Israel arrests 15 Palestinians in West Bank raids


Israeli army rounded up 15 Palestinians in overnight raids across the occupied West Bank, the army said on Wednesday.

The Israeli army frequently conducts wide-ranging arrest campaigns in the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for "wanted" Palestinians.

According to Palestinian figures, more than 6,500 Palestinians — including 300 children — are currently languishing in Israeli prisons.

The arrests came amid high tension across the Palestinian territories after more than 110 Palestinians were martyred by Israeli gunfire during anti-occupation protests since late March.
