JENIN (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces conducted raids on several northern West Bank villages early Wednesday, and detained a man in the city of Jenin.

Security officials told Ma'an that Israeli troops deployed in al-Zawiya, Meithalun, Siris, Sanour and Misliya villages in the early hours, and detained Mahmoud Abdel Razeq Jarar, 40, from his south Jenin residence.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said a Jenin man was "transferred for security questioning," but she was not aware of army activity in the villages.

Local officials said soldiers erected overnight checkpoints between Jenin and Tubas, which the spokeswoman said was "part of routine security activity."
