Israeli forces have detained 20 "wanted" Palestinians in the occupied West Bank overnight, the military said early Sunday.

The army, in a statement, said that most of the detentions happened in Nablus and Jenin in the north of the occupied territory.

The remaining were detained in various areas across the Palestinian territory, including Hebron, Ramallah, and al-Khadr, it said.

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.
