Israeli forces have detained 13 Palestinians in the occupied West Bank overnight over their suspected involvement in "activities against Israeli targets," according to the Israeli military.

The army, in a Sunday statement, said that four of the detainees are local Hamas leaders in the southern West Bank cities of Bethlehem and Hebron.

Israeli forces routinely conduct detention campaigns against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank on claims that they are "wanted" by Israeli authorities.

Over 7,000 Palestinians are currently languishing in prisons throughout Israel, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Prisoners' Affairs.
