BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least 16 Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank overnight Sunday, the Israeli army and locals said.

In East Jerusalem, Israeli forces detained five Palestinians after raiding their homes in al-Issawiya and the Old City. Issa Farawi, 13, and Nasri Farawi, 15, were detained in the Old City and taken to a police station for questioning.

Aziz Ghassan Alyan, 12, Mohammed Ibrahim Alyan, 19, and Mahmoud Mustafa were detained in al-Issawiya after Israeli forces raided the neighborhood.

A local official said that Israeli forces have been targeting the neighborhood in recent weeks and have set up an aerial device at the entrance to the area to monitor activity.

In Beit Ummar, in the occupied West Bank, Israel's army detained Yousef Abu Ayyash, 23, Sami Abu Judeh, 20, and Hasan Mohammad Hasan, 19, while Fuad Nawaja, 28, was detained in Yatta.

Israeli forces also detained a Palestinian woman, Najwan Odeh, from al-Bireh in Ramallah early Monday after ransacking her home in a southern suburb of the city.

Odeh works at Qatar Charity and is a presenter at Women FM Radio in Ramallah.

An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed that a total of 11 Palestinians were detained in the West Bank overnight, two in Jenin, four in Nablus, two in Ramallah and three in Bethlehem.

Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem are routinely arrested by Israeli military forces, usually on the pretext of security questioning.

Nearly 6,000 Palestinian prisoners are currently being held in Israeli jails, according to prisoners' rights group Addameer.
