4 detained during raids on Madama

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained four Palestinian men from the northern West Bank village of Madama during the early hours of Saturday morning, in an operation which included home searches and allegations of vandalism.

The home invasions came two days after forces entered the village in search of young men believed to have thrown Molotov Cocktails toward cars on a settler road in the area.

Member of Madama village council Hassan Ziyada told Ma’an that several Israeli military vehicles raided the village at 2 a.m., and entered a number of homes and ransacked them in what appeared to be a search operation.

Following the home invasions, four young men were detained, the official said, identifying them as 24-year-old Mahmoud Abdullah Qit, 23-year-old Mursi Nizar Ziyada, 25-year-old Basim Arran Nassar, and 20-year-old Asadullah Wajieh Qit.

An Israeli military spokesman confirmed the detentions.
