RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 11 Palestinians in predawn raids across the occupied West Bank early Friday, locals and Israel's army said.

Locals told Ma'an that Ahmad al-Zayyah, 28, and Amer al-Zayyah, 23, were detained from the town of al-Khader in Bethlehem district.
Forces also raided Tulkarem city and detained Ahmad Marzouq Abu al-HAwa, 20, and Muhammad Saber Shihada Salah, 25.

Jihad Idris al-Qit and Mahmoud Abdullah al-Qit were detained by Israeli forces from the Madama area in Nablus.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed one detention in Tulkarem, and told Ma'an that four alleged "Hamas operatives" were detained from Nablus.

Six others were detained from Bethlehem for suspected illegal activity, she said.

The Israeli military regularly carries out search and detention raids in the occupied Palestinian territory, including in areas solely under Palestinian jurisdiction. Forces have carried out a weekly average of 92 raids since the start of this year.

Around 7,000 Palestinians are currently held in Israeli prisons, and nearly 40 percent of the Palestinian male population has been detained at some point in their lives, according to prisoners' rights group Addameer.
