Israeli forces arrested 19 Palestinians and seized money in the occupied West Bank Monday morning.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said in a statement that Israeli forces seized money and claimed to have found several guns in the Jalazone Palestinian Refugee Camp North of Ramallah.

Israeli forces also stormed into other areas, including Hebron, Tulkarm, Jenin, Al-Bireh and Bethlehem and arrested the 19 citizens claiming they are "wanted".

Yesterday, 17 arrests were made against Palestinians during several raids in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, which brought the total of arrests to 430 since the U.S. decision of recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Settlers also broke into Al-Aqsa Mosque while being protected by the Israeli Police.
