According to the Palestinian Press Agency, Israeli occupation forces launched a large wave of arrests this morning in several cities across the West Bank. 

17 Palestinian citizens were arrested, after forces stormed the cities of Hebron, Nablus, Salfit and Bethlehem. Occupation forces have not stated their motives for the arrests. 

Meanwhile in the Gaza strip, occupation forces expanded their hold on Palestinian territory by moving several meters further into the town of Khuza'a, east of Khan Yunis in the south, according to Roya correspondents.

Palestinian sources state that Israeli forces, reinforced with bulldozers and heavy machinery, forced their way in while conducting dredging operations.
