Israeli army forces rounded up 27 Palestinians in overnight raids carried out across the occupied West Bank, according to the Israeli military on Tuesday.

The individuals were detained for what the army described as “suspected involvement in popular terrorist activities”, an army statement said.

It did not elaborate on the nature of these activities.

The detained Palestinians have since been remanded into custody for further investigation, according to the same statement.

The Israeli army frequently conducts sweeping arrest campaigns across the occupied territories on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.

According to Palestinian figures, some 6,500 Palestinians are currently languishing in Israeli prisons, including scores of women, roughly 350 minors, and at least six lawmakers.
