Hebron - Ma'an -Israeli forces detained 17 Palestinian citizens from West Bank cities on Friday. From Beit Kahil north of Hebron, 13 were detained, and another four from towns surrounding Ramallah.

Ma'an's correspondent reported from Beit Kahil, saying that a military operation involving at least 25 military vehicles was conducted in the village late Thursday night. The vehicles overran the area and broke into dozens of homes, arresting 13.

Those arrested were:

Ahmad Muhammad Ibrahim Al-'Eqel , a school teacher

Murad Abdel Wahed Al-'Eqel, a university student

Ayman Ahmad Muhammad Az-Zuhur, a student

Nafeth Muhamad Al-'Asafreh, a teacher

Muhammad Issa Al-'Asafreh, a university student

Ahmad Abdel Qader Al-'Asafreh

Muhamad Sulayman Al-'Asafreh and his brother Fawzi and Mahmoud Abdel Qader 'Asafreh

Fesal Mahmoud Az-Zuhur

Two members from the Az-Zuhur family (Mu'tasem Khaled Az-Zuhur and Muhessein Abdullah Al-'Atawneh) received a statement from the Israeli intelligence unit instructing them to surrender.

The men were seized and taken to an unknown location by troops, who withdrew from the village at 3:30am on Friday morning.

While it appears that the men did not surrender themselves, no clashes occurred.
