Israeli forces have arrested 70 Palestinians in the West Bank. They had been wanted by Israel for some time and most were picked up in Beit Ommar in the south of the territory. Israeli troops entered the town early on Wednesday morning and imposed a curfew before starting to detain people. Last month, two members of Islamic Jihad from Beit Ommar were killed when they attacked a Jewish settlement in the West Bank. (Radio Netherlands)
