Israeli occupation forces overnight on Thursday barged their way into Askar refugee camp near Nablus, in the northern West Bank, where they rounded up two Palestinians.
The midnight raid triggered confrontations between Palestinians and the heavily-armed Israeli troops.
Similar raids occured in ‘Aida refugee camp and Hindaza mountain, in Bethlehem district.
Gun-toting soldiers also conducted a raid in Qabatiya town, south of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, where they re-arrested a former prisoner.
At the same time, Israeli police rounded up another Palestinian from Issawiya neighborhood, which lies on the eastern slopes of Jerusalem, as confirmed by the Wadi Hilweh Information Center.
Israeli forces raid Palestinian houses almost on a daily basis across the occupied territories under the pretext of searching for "wanted" Palestinians, triggering clashes with residents.
Under Israeli military law, army commanders have full executive, legislative and judicial authority over 3 million Palestinians living in the West Bank. Palestinians have no say in how this authority is exercised.
