Early Thursday morning, Israeli forces launched a large-scale operation in different parts of the West Bank, where they raided the homes of random Palestinian citizens and arrested them over claims that they were “wanted” by the authorities, a Palestinian official source has reported.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said in a statement that Israeli forces stormed the cities of Jenin, Nablus, el-Beira, Bethlehem, Hebron and Ramallah on Thursday and arrested 16 innocent Palestinians in the process.

In the city of Rafah in the Gaza Strip, a 15-year-old boy died after being shot in the head by Israeli soldiers on Wednesday, reported WAFA.

Palestinian people face similar military raids on daily basis, which usually don't exclude any of the occupied cities or towns in the West Bank.
