QALQILIYA (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained two from the town of Azzun, east of Qalqiliya, during raids overnight, local sources told Ma'an.

Locals say the detentions are just the latest in a string if night raids targeting residents, and have seen ten of Azzun's men and teenagers detained since the start of the month.

The invading troops used stun grenades as they surrounded two homes in the village, taking 20-year-old Makram Abu Haniyeh, and 17-year-old Mustafa Hussein, to an unknown

An Israeli military spokesman said two were detained from the area, both "suspected of involvement in violent and illegal riots," he noted they were among a total of eight Palestinians detained from across the West Bank.

Palestinians organizing non-violent protests against Israeli occupation, land confiscation and the construction of the separation wall on Palestinian land are often targeted for detention.
