Israeli army on Wednesday detained at least six Palestinians from various parts of the West Bank, the Palestinian news agency WAFA reported, quoting local and security sources.

Israeli soldiers rounded up a Palestinian after ransacking his family house in Jalazone refugee camp, north of Ramallah city.

In East Jerusalem, dozens of Israeli soldiers hiding in a minibus stormed Shuafat refugee camp and detained four others.

Meanwhile, the sources confirmed a similar raid in Jericho city, resulting in the detention of another.

Israeli forces frequently raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the West Bank on the pretext of searching for "wanted" Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.
