Eight palestinians including minors were detained Sunday during predawn Israeli raids in different areas across the West Bank, according to Maan news.

A Palestinian youth was reportedly detained from the Tulkarem district, in the northern West Bank, while three other high school students were detained from the Ramallah area, central West Bank.

Another four Palestinians including a 14-year old were detained in Hebron area, southern West Bank, after several homes were raided and searched.

Prisoners’ rights group, Addameer, has estimated that 40% of Palestinians men will be detained by Israeli forces at some point in their lives.

A joint, monthly report released by Addameer, The Prisoner's Club, and Al Mezan Center for Human Rights has revealed that 431 Palestinians were arrested by the occupation forces in the month of September 2017 and numbers are still on the count.

Israeli forces regularly raid Palestinian towns, villages, and refugee camps in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.
