According to official estimates, more than 6,400 Palestinians are held in Israel

 Israeli forces rounded up 10 Palestinians in overnight raids carried out across the occupied West Bank, the Israeli military said on Monday. 

The individuals were arrested for “suspected involvement in popular terrorist activities”, the army claimed in a statement without elaborating. 

The detainees have been remanded into custody for further investigation, the statement said. 

The Israeli army frequently conducts wide-ranging arrest campaigns in the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians. 

According to official Palestinian estimates, some 6,500 Palestinians are currently languishing in Israeli prisons, including 62 women and about 350 minors.
