Israeli forces rounded up 24 Palestinians in the West Bank city of Hebron on Saturday, according to a local official.

Israeli forces raided Hebron’s town of Surif and searched a number of houses there, the official, who preferred not to be named, told Anadolu Agency.

According to the official, 24 residents were detained in the raid.

The Israeli army often carries out detention campaigns against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, claiming to arrest wanted Palestinians.

At least 4,650 Palestinians were held in Israeli prisons as of this October, according to the Palestinian Prisoner Society, an NGO.
