BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Nine people were arrested overnight Monday, according to the Israeli army and witnesses.

Israeli forces raided the al-Bahar bakery in Beit Ummar, north of Hebron, and seized 17-year-old Muhammad Yoused Bahar, before driving to his home and detaining his 14-year-old brother Abed Al-Rahman, a Ma'an correspondent said.

Local anti-settlement committee spokesman Muhammad Awad said soldiers also detained Rasheed Ali Awad, 15, from his Beit Ummar home.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said five people were arrested for security questioning in the Hebron area overnight.

In Bethlehem, soldiers seized Iyad Ulayyan from Duheisha refugee camp in the early hours, the Association of Freed Prisoners in the camp said.

Ulayyan's 16-year-old son Said has been in Israeli custody for 50 days, the center noted.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli forces also raided the northern town of Yabad, Jenin, and arrested three men.

Haydar Yousif Amarnah, Majdi Hasan Amarnah and Namiq Tariq Abu Bakr were named by witnesses as those detained.

Palestinians living in the occupied territories are routinely arrested by Israeli forces, who usually state security reasons as justification.

Around 40 percent of Palestinian men living in the occupied territories have been detained by Israel at some point in their lives.
