According to Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS), who was quoted by WAFA news agency, Israeli forces detained seven Palestinians during separate raids in Yaabad and Qabatiya towns, located south of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.
In East Jerusalem, forces also detained a Palestinian during a raid in Anata. Three more were held during an overnight raid in Jabal al-Mukabbir.
As per official data of PPS, around 740 Palestinians, including 190 children and 15 women, have been detained by Israeli forces ever since US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital on December 6 last year.
Since then, Israeli forces have killed 12 Palestinians. At least 2,900 others have been injured and more than 400 arrested.
Jerusalem is considered a sacred place, which is home to Jewish, Christian and Muslim holy sites. However, it is also a disputed territory, contested by both Israel and Palestine, which sees it as the capital of its future state.
