The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) reported that the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) have arrested 25 Palestinians in the West Bank between Friday, and Saturday morning.

The total number of arrests in the West Bank has reached more than 9,325 Palestinians since October 7, 2023.

The arrests include those taken from their homes, at military checkpoints, those pressured to surrender, and those taken as hostages, according to the PPS’ statement.

Meanwhile, the IOF is intensifying its raids on Palestinian cities and refugee camps, conducting arrests in several towns in the West Bank.

Since the launch “Operation Aqsa Typhoon” by Hamas’ military wing, Al-Qassam Brigades, and the beginning of the “Israeli” aggression on Gaza, the IOF has escalated its military operations in the West Bank, escalating incursions and raids on Palestinian cities, towns, and refugee camps, resulting in hundreds of martyrs and thousands of injuries, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.
