China View, March 5, 2008

RAMALLAH, March 5 (Xinhua) — Israeli troops arrested 27Palestinians in West Bank on Wednesday as part of overnight raids that the army carried out on a near-daily basis, Palestinian security sources said.

Eleven Palestinians were arrested in Jenin, seven in Qalqilya, four near Nablus and five in Ramallah city, the sources said, adding that the Israeli army cordoned off Qalqilya without revealing the reasons.

Israel arrested scores of Palestinians in regular incursions in the occupied West Bank, saying the people were detained for interrogation and many of them were wanted by Israel.

The detentions did not scale down despite efforts to revive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
