Israeli forces detain released prisoners in Beit Ummar

HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained three Palestinians in the West Bank overnight Tuesday, including two released prisoners.

Issa Mohammad Issa Awad, 24, and Waseem Wahadeen, 19, were detained from their homes in Hebron-district town Beit Ummar at dawn, popular committee spokesman Mohammad Ayad Awad said.

Issa was released from Israeli jail in last year's prisoner exchange, while Wahadeen has been detained several times in the past, Awad said.

The spokesman said forces raided another house in the town, that of Mohammad Safi Ali al-Slaibi, breaking down the door despite his wife giving troops the keys. Limited clashes erupted in the village, but no injuries were reported, he said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said two were detained in Beit Ummar overnight, and another in Bethlehem.
