Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli forces reportedly seized nine Palestinians near Ramallah on Thursday.

Eight of the six men and three children lived in the village of Ni'lin, west of the city. One other detainee is from Ramallah. All were taken for investigation, according to Israeli and Palestinian sources.

Witnesses said Israeli forces took two of the minors when they could not locate those they intended to arrest.

The father of Mohammed Salah Khawaje, 12, told reporters that Israeli soldiers used the boy as a human shield against rocks thrown by Palestinian youths.

The two other minors seized in the raid are Mohammed Loi Khawaje, 13, and Sofian Nawaf Khawaje, 17.

Israeli forces also took Arafat Amira, Imad Azzam Khawaje, 18, Mustafa Khawaje, 20, Milhim Amira, 22, Yousef Amira, 34 and Salah Mira, 36.
