WEST BANK, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) arrested 14 Palestinians including minors during raids sweeping the West Bank Wednesday morning.

The majority of those arrests took place in Jerusalem province, where the IOF arrested five Palestinians, among them two children and a minor, sources said. Arrests were also reported in the provinces of Nablus, Al-Khalil, and Bethlehem.

Among those arrested was a 61-year-old man while he was near his home near the Kiryat Arba settlement east of Al-Khalil city.
