BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least 11 Palestinians during predawn military raids Sunday across the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, according to a statement from the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).

An Israeli army spokesperson said only eight Palestinians were detained in raids, and did not offer details on the locations where the detentions were carried out.

Israeli forces detained 522 Palestinians, including 130 minors and 16 women, over the course of the month of August, according to a joint report released Palestinian institutions on Sunday.

The total number of Palestinians in Israeli prisons reached 6,300 prisoners, the report said, 64 of them women. Among them are 10 girls under the age of 18 and 300 underage boys, 450 administrative detainees imprisoned without charge or trial, and 12 members of the Palestinian Legislative Council, the Palestinian parliament.
