ULKAREM (Ma’an) – The Israeli army detained at least six Palestinians from cities and towns across the occupied West Bank early Wednesday, relatives and security officials said.

Soldiers raided the house of 20-year-old Walid Mohammed Ajouli in the village of Qaffin north of Tulkarem, detaining him on the scene. The detainee’s family said Walid had heart problems.

An army spokeswoman said six Palestinians were detained overnight.

One was detained in Nablus, two in Bizzariya, north of Nablus, two in Ayda refugee camp in Bethlehem, and one in Surif, southwest of Bethlehem, the official said.

Meanwhile an Israeli unit attacked dozens of Palestinians protesting against Israel's dumping waste in a landfill in the city of Nablus.

Soldiers arrived at the landfill and forced a complete evacuation of the area, before firing stun grenades and tear gas against protesters, and arresting 13-year-old Mohammad Munther Solaiman.

Protesters were demanding Israel shut down the site because the waste comes from Israeli territory and its contents are unknown. Protesters said it risked harming the environment.

An army spokeswoman said 40 Palestinians hurled rocks at soldiers who responded with riot-dispersal means. She was unaware of the reports of an arrest.
