Israeli forces raid Kafr Qaddum

QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided the northern West Bank village of Kafr Qaddum before dawn on Thursday and detained locals and two police officers, witnesses said.

Witnesses said soldiers detained police officers Thaer Shteiwi, 38, and Riyad Shteiwi, 38, and 18 other residents including four minors.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said 19 people were arrested overnight on suspicion of being involved in "violent and illegal" riots in the village.

Locals told Ma'an that soldiers ransacked several homes during the raid and stole jewelry worth 8000 Jordanian dinars ($11,200) from Ata Shteiwi's home.

An Israeli security official said the arrests of personnel from the Palestinian security apparatus were not expected to affect ongoing security coordination.
