Israeli army raided several areas in the West Bank early Thursday, wounding two Palestinians and arresting 14, Palestinian security sources said.

The sources said that soldiers fired at a Palestinian who tried to escape when the army came to arrest him in Nablus city, wounding him lightly. A similar incident took place in Al-Faria village near Jenin town in northern West Bank.

Israel storms Palestinian-controlled territories in the West Bank on daily basis to detain people alleged to be active members of the different Palestinian factions and militant groups.

More detention raids took place in Bethlehem and Tubas towns on Thursday.

The Palestinian National Authority (PNA) said the Israeli incursions undermine its efforts to impose order and security in the territories it controls.
