RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained at least 10 Palestinians, including a journalist, in Wednesday night raids across the occupied West Bank, Israeli and Palestinian sources said.

The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) reported on Thursday that four Palestinians were detained in the southern West Bank district of Hebron, including journalist and former prisoner Osama Shaheen.

The other Hebron-area detainees were identified by PPS as Muntaser Yousef Abu Ayash, 23, and former prisoners Qasem Abu Hussein, 26, and Nour al-Atrash, 27.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed to Ma’an that four Palestinians had been detained in the Hebron district, listing three detentions in the city of Hebron and one in the village of al-Bira.

PPS added that Nabaa al-Sefi, 20, was detained in the refugee camp of al-Duheisha in the southern district of Bethlehem.

Locals told Ma’an that clashes erupted in al-Duheisha during the raid, during which one Palestinian was injured.

Al-Duheisha residents added that Israeli soldiers raided the camp with dogs and fired live bullet, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear gas at Palestinians until dawn Thursday morning. One Palestinian was reportedly injured in the leg by live fire and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Israeli forces upturned al-Sefi’s home during the raid, destroying furniture and demolishing part of the interior walls.
