Israeli troops have detained scores of Palestinians, including a number of resistance leaders, in overnight operations across the occupied West Bank.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said 22 people were rounded up on Thursday for interrogation, including 10 in the northern West Bank city of Jenin, Ma’an news agency reported.

There were reportedly nine members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) among the detainees.

PFLP officials said nearly 20 Israeli army jeeps raided Jenin and seized nine of the resistance group’s leaders.

Witnesses said that Israeli soldiers stormed Palestinian houses inconsiderate of the presence of women and children. They said one of those arrested was sick while another was disabled.

The raid was the second operation targeting the Palestinian faction in the last month, following a November raid, where 13 PFLP leaders were detained in Ramallah and Jenin.
