The Israel Defense Forces says troops detained 10 wanted Palestinians and seized several weapons during overnight arrest raids across the West Bank.

The 10 have been taken by the Shin Bet security agency for further questioning.

The IDF says an M16 rifle and other firearms and military equipment were seized in several southern West Bank villages, and in Anata on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

The arrests come amid an ongoing IDF anti-terror offensive in the West Bank following a series of deadly Palestinian attacks earlier this year.
