HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained six people from Hebron on Monday night, the Palestinian prisoners' society and the army said Tuesday.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said six people were detained Monday but was unable to comment on the reason for the arrests.

The prisoners' society said Ayid Mohammad Salim Dodin was among those detained. Dodin spent the last five years in Israeli administrative detention without charge or trial and had only been released in June.

The other detainees were Yousef Abdul Aziz Mahmoud Haddosh, Ahmad Mazin Kalbouna from Nablus, Rami Yousef Darwish Al-Qawasma and brothers Jalal and Mohammad Yaghmour, the society said.

Some of the detainees were students at Hebron university.

All of them were transferred to Etzion prison in the southern West Bank, according to the rights group.
