RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least 11 Palestinians from the occupied West Bank in detention raids on Wednesday night, including two teenage girls from Hebron City, according to Israeli and Palestinian security sources.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said that Mahira Maher Burqan and Sara Salah Sidr, both 12, were detained near the Ibrahimi mosque in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron.

In occupied East Jerusalem, Palestinian security sources said that Israeli forces detained Muhammad Nafe Hamayil from the Jabaa checkpoint, while Shadi Muhammad Muhsen, 30, and Daoud Muhammad Ayyad, 40, were detained from the village of Abu Dis in Jerusalem.

Alaa Shawqi Beidas was also reportedly detained from the al-Judeira village in northwestern Jerusalem, Palestinian sources said.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that they had records of six detentions in overnight raids. She listed three detentions in and around Nablus, two around Ramallah, and one southwest of Bethlehem.
