Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli forces on Sunday early morning seized nine Palestinians in the West Bank what the Israeli military claimed were "security" reasons.

According to the Israeli army, five of the arrestees were in Ramallah in the central West Bank, and four from Bethlehem in the south. Army sources have not revealed identities of the arrestees.

Local Palestinian sources in Bethlehem said Israeli forces stormed the town of Tuqu east of Bethlehem and detained 33-year-old Umar Nawawra.

Separately, in Duheisha Refugee Camp, south of Bethlehem, another Israeli force raided the camp and nabbed 17-year-old Mustafa Al-Ghari and 18-year-old Murad Al-Ghari.

Invading Israeli forces also ransacked several homes overnight in both neighborhoods before they arrested the three young men.
