BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained two Palestinian men from the southern West Bank village of Husan west of Bethlehem early on Sunday morning, according to the Palestinian Prisoner's Society.

The group identified the detainees in a statement as Majdi Hamamra and Nasri Hamamra.

The pair were detained after Israeli troops ransacked their homes in the village.

An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed the arrests, saying that the two were detained because of "involvement in illegal activity."

Approximately 7,000 Palestinians are currently being held in Israeli jail, including around 500 without charge or trial.
