Israeli forces detained 17 Palestinians in overnight raids carried out across the occupied West Bank, Israeli army said on Tuesday.

'SUSPECTED' INVOLVEMENT

The statement said the individuals were arrested for "suspected involvement in popular terror activities", without elaborating about the nature of the activities.

The Israeli army conducts frequent raids across the West Bank -- including occupied East Jerusalem -- on the pretext of searching and detaining "wanted" Palestinians.
