Description
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) – Israeli forces detained at least 10 Palestinians and confiscated money in multiple predawn military raids across the occupied West Bank, according to the Israeli army.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that a “Hamas operative” was detained in the town of Beita south of Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank.

Israeli media reported that "tens of thousands shekels" were seized from the detainee's house, allegedly used in "terrorist activities against Israel."
In the northernmost district of Jenin, the Israeli army said they detained one person in Jenin city and another in the village of Birqin west of the city.

Meanwhile, three Palestinians were detained in al-Jalazun refugee camp in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.

In the southern occupied West Bank, Israeli forces also raided the Hebron district and detained one Palestinian from the village of Sair and another from the village of al-Kom, according to the Israeli army spokesperson, who added two Palestinians were also detained in the village of Husan in the Bethlehem district.

The Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS), which documents overnight raids by Israeli forces, said in a statement earlier this month that it had recorded the detention of 100 Palestinians, including 18 minors, in the first five days of 2017.

Israeli forces carry out detention raids across the occupied Palestinian territory on a near-nightly basis, with the UN recording some 178 raids in the West Bank between Dec. 13 and 26, 2016.

According to prisoners’ rights group Addameer, 7,000 Palestinians were held in Israeli prisons as of October 2016.
