The statement said the arrests took place in Silwad town, northeast of Ramallah, Qalandiya refugee camp in Jerusalem, and al- Deheisheh refugee camp in Bethlehem.

Quds Press, for its part, said the IOF raided several towns and villages in the West Bank and patrolled their neighborhoods at night.

It added that Israeli soldiers handed young men summonses for interrogation from the Shin Bet after raiding their homes in Beit Fajjar town in Bethlehem.

Ex-detainee Bassam Hammad, the father of martyr Anas Hammad, also received a similar summons during an IOF campaign in Silwad town near Ramallah.

The IOF also carried out campaigns in Ein Yabrud and Beitin towns near Ramallah following a stone-throwing attack on an Israeli bus in a nearby area.
