TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Wednesday detained seven Palestinians in Nablus and Tulkarem after military vehicles crossed into to area, locals reported.

They said soldiers abducted five people from the Nablus area, and they were identified as Mahdi Salah Khouri, Adel Bashar al-Zarya, Ezz al-Din Mansour, Mohammad Khefo, and Mutaz Shbarou.

All of the detainees are affiliated to Fatah.
