Israeli forces arrested 16 Palestinians in the West Bank early on Thursday, eyewitnesses said.

Scores of soldiers stormed a village near Selfit town and detained 10 Palestinians on claims of being wanted by Israeli security agencies, the witnesses said.

Israeli forces also detained six Palestinian youths in raids in Jenin and Al-Khalil in the occupied territory.

Israeli officials have yet to confirm the arrests.

Israeli forces routinely launch raids across the West Bank on claims of hunting down "wanted" Palestinians.

According to a recent report by the Prisoners Center for Studies and Research, a Palestinian NGO, there are roughly 5000 Palestinians languishing in Israeli jails.
