Description
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained at least 14 Palestinians during overnight and predawn raids between Sunday and Monday in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, Palestinian and Israeli sources said.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society reported that the Israeli army raided the Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank, detaining two, whom it identified as Ramzi al-Qunira and Muhammad Othman.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that only two Palestinians were detained overnight, confirming the detentions in Jenin refugee camp.

In the Nablus district, locals said that Israeli soldiers stormed the village of Burin, detaining Ahmad Tamim, Ahmad Muhammad Omran, and Ali Hindi.

However, PPS added that four Palestinians from the city of Jenin -- identified as Muhammad Tayseer Nazzal, Ahmad Walid al-Saadi, Walid Muhammad al-Saadi, and Ghassan Dablah -- were detained by Israeli forces at a checkpoint near Ramallah.

In the neighborhood of Silwan in the Jerusalem district, PPS reported the detention of three minors, identified as Numan Zyad Faraj, 16, Ahmad Mazin al-Razam, 17, and Omar Ismail Shweiki, 16.

In the southern West Bank district of Hebron, PPS also reported that Mustafa Salibi was detained in Beit Ummar, while Majdi Masalma, a former prisoner, was detained in Beit Awwa.

Israeli forces raid the occupied Palestinian territory on a near-nightly basis, with an average of 71 raids each week in 2016, according to UN documentation.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, 7,000 Palestinians were held in Israeli prisons as of July. The group estimates that 40 percent of Palestinian men have been detained by Israel at some point in their lives.
