Israeli forces arrest five Palestinians in West Bank
Israeli soldiers arrested five "wanted" Palestinians during operations overnight Monday in the West Bank.
Two Fatah activists were arrested in Nablus, while in a village west of Ramallah, another two Palestinians wanted for questioning were detained. Meanwhile, a fifth Palestinian was arrested in Jenin.
According to locals, the army was also tightening the closure on Nablus and the surrounding villages.
Elsewhere, on Tuesday, a loud boom was heard in Gaza City and Palestinian police later said it was caused by
Israeli fighter planes swooping low over the city.
