At least five Palestinians have been killed and as many others injured by Israeli forces in a wave of arrest operations and nightly raids across the occupied West Bank.

The night raids were carried out on Sunday in five different regions, including the village of Beyt Anan near Ramallah and the towns of Kefr Burkin and Qabatiya in Jenin, local media reported on Sunday.

Israel claimed the wave of arrests targeted a Hamas cell that Israeli security forces had been tracking for several days.

The Israeli military has confirmed the deaths, according to Israeli media.

Israeli aggression is common in the occupied West Bank, which Israel captured in a war in the Middle East in 1967. The Palestinians seek the territory as well as the city of Gaza for a future state with occupied East Jerusalem as its capital.

Almost half a million people live in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, alongside 2.8 million Palestinians.
