SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a mid-level Fatah official in the West Bank at dawn on Monday, among 11 Palestinians seized overnight.

Ahmad abdul-Karim ad-Dik, 43, who is a member of the Fatah leadership in Salfit, was detained from his home in Kafr al-Dik, his brother Faris told Ma'an.

Faris, who heads the Salfit branch of the PA ministry of sport, said intelligence officers also called him instructing him to turn himself or become a fugitive. He blamed Israel for starting a new campaign against Fatah supporters.

Local officials said 40-year-old Abdullah Khalil al-Umour was also detained from Al-Dhahiriya and Mahmoud Yousif al-Awaysa from Yatta, two towns south of Hebron.

An Israeli army spokesman said one person was detained in Kafr al-Dik, and another in Hebron, Abu Sheikhedim, and al-Maazra, near Ramallah.

Five Palestinians were arrested in Hebron refugee camp al-Arroub, and two others in Nablus, he said.
