Israeli army arrested seven Palestinians in West Bank cities early on Thursday, Palestinian security sources said.

The detentions took place in Nablus, Ramallah, Jenin and Jericho, the sources added.

At dawn, the Israeli army stormed Nablus and arrested three residents during raids and searching operations in houses, said the sources.

Israeli sources said the detainees were taken for interrogation because they were wanted by the security services.

The Israeli forces also stormed Jenin city in northern West Bank using seven military vehicles. No injuries were reported and the troops withdrew on Thursday morning.

An Egyptian-brokered ceasefire went into effect in the Gaza Strip a week ago, but the West Bank, which is controlled by forces loyal to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, stays out of the deal.

The Israeli operations in the West Bank provoked Palestinian factions to respond.

The Islamic Jihad (Holy War) fired rockets at Israel from the Gaza Strip Tuesday in retaliation for an Israeli raid in the West Bank, which made the ceasefire shaky and forced Israel to halt the gradual lifting of sanctions on Gaza.
