The Israel Defense Forces says troops detained nine wanted Palestinians during overnight arrest raids across the West Bank.

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

The arrests come amid an ongoing IDF anti-terror offensive in the West Bank following a series of Palestinian attacks that killed 19 people earlier this year. Four soldiers have been killed in the West Bank in attacks and during the arrest operations.

The IDF adds that during overnight operations, Palestinians hurled explosive devices, stones and Molotov cocktails at troops near the northern West Bank town of Zababdeh.

“Forces responded with riot dispersal means and live fire,” the military says.

No soldiers are hurt in the incidents.
