QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained five men from a Qalqiliya-district village overnight Monday, locals told Ma'an.

Troops raided a number of houses in Kafr Qaddum, before seizing Ali Juma, 20, Ahmad Juma, 20, Aqba Obeid, 33, Majd Abu Khaled, 23, and Abdul Latif Obeid, 18, residents said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said four were detained in the village and "taken for security questioning."

Kafr Qaddum holds a weekly protest against the decade-long closure of the area's main entrance. The village lies beside Jewish-only settlement Qedumim.

The army spokeswoman said six others were detained across the West Bank overnight Monday.
