RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- At least 15 Palestinians were detained by Israeli forces during raids across the occupied West Bank overnight Sunday and before dawn, according to official Palestinian and Israeli army sources.
The Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS) said in a statement Monday that 10 Palestinians were detained during the raids.

According to PPS, three Palestinians were detained from the Tulkarem-area towns of Deir al-Ghusun and Seida. The three were identified as Fouad al-Qab, Fadi Radad and Luay al-Ashqar.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed one detention from Deir al-Ghusun and two from Seida.
