Bethlehem – Ma'an – The brothers of alleged knife attacker Muhammad Al-Khatib were detained during a raid on their home in Ya'bad village in the Jenin governorate Wednesday afternoon, as Israeli soldiers nabbed 19 teens and three adults from other locations across the West Bank overnight.

The detention of Ated Aqab Khalaf Khatib, 29, and Muhammad Aqab Khalaf Khatib, 30, followed the detention of their brother, accused of stabbing an Israeli soldier near the Za'tara checkpoint on Wednesday afternoon. The soldier died in hospital of injuries sustained after the attack when he rolled the vehicle while escaping.

Israeli forces raided Muhammad's home Wednesday afternoon, part of an investigation into the killing, an Israeli military spokesman said. The spokesman confirmed that the family members were detained as suspects, but could not confirm whether they were suspects in the alleged knife attack.

Three other raids occurred in the West Bank between midnight and sunrise, targeting Palestinians from the Ramallah and Bethlehem governorates.
