Army: Forces detain 55 Palestinians in West Bank

JERUSALEM (Reuters) -- Israeli forces seized 55 Palestinians in the West Bank overnight Wednesday, the army said, citing a need to quell the occupied territory after a truce ended eight days of fighting in the Gaza Strip.

The army said the detainees were from various armed Palestinian factions and included "senior operatives,"adding that it would "continue to maintain order ... and prevent the infiltration of terrorists into Israeli communities."

Israel launched an air offensive against Hamas and other Gaza factions on Nov. 14 killing 170 Palestinians. The sides entered an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire on Wednesday night.

During the clashes, two Palestinians were shot dead during anti-Israel demonstrations in the West Bank that turned into confrontations with the army.
