At least 85 people have been arrested in the occupied West Bank by Israeli forces Sunday night and early Monday morning, according to a statement published by the Palestinian Prisoners Club.
The arrests took place in Ramallah and Bethlehem, it said, adding that more than 1,215 people have been arrested in the West Bank since the start of the month.
CNN has reached out to the IDF for comment on the arrests. There have been arrests of suspected militants in the West Bank daily since October 7.
The Palestinian Prisoners Club is a non-governmental organization dedicated to addressing the concerns of Palestinian detainees in Israeli prisons and detention centers, according to its website.
Some context: Even before the war with Hamas, tension was high between Palestinians and Israelis in the West Bank.
Following a wave of Palestinian attacks on Israelis last year, Israel launched regular incursions and raids into the West Bank targeting what they said were militant strongholds. The resulting violence left a record number of both Palestinians and Israelis dead, numbers not seen in at least a decade.
Since Israel took control and occupied the West Bank in 1967 from Jordan following the Six Day War, the territory, which residents hope will form part of a future Palestinian state, has been settled by Israeli civilians, often under military protection.
Most of the world considers these settlements illegal under international law.
