Israel Launches Fresh Airstrikes in Gaza, Detained 8 Palestinians in West Bank Raids

Israeli forces have detained eight Palestinians in overnight raids carried out across the occupied West Bank, the Israeli army said.

In a Wednesday statement, the Israeli military said the individuals had been arrested for “suspected involvement in popular hostile activities”, without elaborating about the nature of these alleged activities.

The Israeli army carries out frequent arrest campaigns across the West Bank — including occupied East Jerusalem — on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.

According to Palestinian figures, roughly 5,700 Palestinians — including numerous women and children — are currently languishing in Israeli detention facilities.

Meanwhile, Israeli warplanes carried out fresh airstrikes in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday following a rocket fire, according to the military.

The army said fighter jets struck a number of targets belonging to Palestinian groups Hamas, which rules the seaside territory.

No injuries were reported.

The military said a weapons manufacturing site and underground infrastructure were among the sites targeted.
