Israel detains 10 in West Bank raids

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 10 Palestinians in raids across the West Bank overnight Monday, the army said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman told Ma'an that 10 people were taken "for security questioning," including three from Beit Ummar and one from Ramallah.

Around 30 army vehicles raided the Baten al-Hawa suburb of Ramallah and surrounded a building, detaining 28-year-old Aziz al-Remawi. Al-Remawi evaded an attempt to arrest him last week in Beit Rema, north of Ramallah, locals told Ma'an.

In Beit Ummar, north of Hebron, Israeli troops raided several homes and detained Mahmud Awad, 25, Rasheed Awad, 17, and Shareef Abu Ayash, 20, popular committee spokesman Mohammad Awad told Ma'an.
