JENIN (Ma'an) 10 June -- Israeli forces detained Hamas leader and former minister Wasfi Qabaha overnight Thursday from his home in the West Bank city of Jenin, witnesses said. Locals said soldiers surrounded Qabaha's home amid intensive shooting and took the 50-year-old to an unknown location. In 2007, Qabaha was arrested by Israeli forces and detained without charge for three years under administrative detention.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said troops detained eight Palestinians overnight from the West Bank. Locals in Hussan village west of Bethlehem said Israeli troops detained 22-year-old Muhammad Shusha in a dawn raid on his father's home.
