JERUSALEM, AP -Israel arrested 82 Palestinian militants in the West Bank overnight, the military said Tuesday.

The sweep against Hamas and Islamic Jihad activists follows the arrest of 207 Palestinian militants on Sunday.

The detentions have come in tandem with an Israeli military offensive against Palestinian militants in Gaza who bombarded southern Israel with dozens of homemade rockets over the weekend.
