BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – Israeli forces ransacked several homes in the Bethlehem district in the southern West Bank early Saturday and detained five young Palestinians.

Locals and eyewitnesses told Ma’an that Israeli military vehicles stormed al-Saff and Hindaza neighborhoods of Bethlehem breaking into several homes before daybreak.

The invading troops detained three young men identified by locals as 20-year-old Ayyad Jamal al-Hreimi, 21-year-old Murad Ali Asakra, and 18-year-old Abdullah Awwad Jawarish.

Witnesses highlighted that the soldiers forcibly opened the main door of an apartment belonging to former prisoner Nadir al-Hreimi and thoroughly inspected the apartment destroying its interior.
