The Israeli army has detained 46 Palestinians in overnight raids in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, a local Palestinian NGO said on Wednesday.
35 Palestinians were arrested when Israeli forces raided their homes in East Jerusalem's Silwan and Ras al-Amoud neighborhood, Qadora Faris, head of the Palestinian Prisoner's Society, told Anadolu Agency.
Israeli forces also detained 11 Palestinians in the West Bank cities of Jenin and Hebron, he added
Qadora said that most of those detained by Israeli forces were minors.
The Israeli army frequently carries out sweeping arrest campaigns in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem that ostensibly target Palestinians "wanted" by the Israeli occupation authorities.
Currently, over 7,000 Palestinians are languishing in Israeli prisons, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Prisoners' Affairs.
