Israeli forces detained at least 120 people in the occupied West Bank between Friday night and Saturday morning, according to the official Palestinian news agency WAFA.

According to WAFA, more than 40 people were rounded up in different towns and villages in the Ramallah area, mainly from the towns of Aroura and Rantis.

27 others were detained in the Bethlehem governorate. One of them is a 15-year-old minor who was detained along with his father.

26 Palestinians were detained in the Hebron district, most of them from Deir Samet, while at least 13 others were detained in the Nablus district.

On October 7, Israel launched its latest military aggression on the besieged and impoverished Gaza Strip. The number of Palestinians killed and wounded in the Israeli war on Gaza rose to over 4,100 dead and over 13,500 wounded.

On October 9, Israel imposed a “total siege” on the Gaza Strip, blocking the entry of food, water, medicine, fuel, and electricity.

A total of 1,070 Palestinians have been detained in the West Bank since October 7, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Club.

They are said to include lawmakers, prominent activists, journalists, and former detainees who have served extended terms in Israeli prisons.
