BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained 14 people overnight Sunday across the West Bank, Israel's army and Palestinian security sources said.

Four people were detained in the Ramallah area, two in Qalqiliya, two in Nablus and six in the Hebron area, an Israeli army spokeswoman said.

All those detained were taken for security questioning, the spokeswoman said.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that Samer Muhammad, 19, Musab Muhammad, 13, Nihad Ayoub, 24, Shadi Abu Daya, 22, and Adham Adawi, 21, were arrested in al-Arrub refugee camp, Hebron.

Student Oday Abu Elba, 21, was arrested in Qalqiliya.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center said that five minors were arrested in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan.

Shadad al-Awar, 12, Sahib al-Awar, 13, Elias al-Awar, 14, Ahmad Salah, 14 and Islam al-Awar, 17, were named as those arrested.

Israeli police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said he had no reports of the arrests.

Palestinians living in the occupied territories are routinely arrested by Israeli forces, usually on the pretext of security.

Around 40 percent of Palestinian men living in the occupied territories have been detained by Israel at some point in their lives.
