JENIN (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians were detained early Thursday in the Jenin villages of Yamoun and Jaba, witnesses told Ma'an.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said there had been no detentions overnight.

Locals said Muhammad Salash Hmarneh, 47, and Muhammad Mahmud Alwneh, 17, were detained in the dawn raid on Jaba, and forces set up a military checkpoint at the entrance to the village.

In near Yamoun, Israeli forces detained Abed al-Ghani Abu al-Hayja, 53, from his home, witnesses said. They told Ma'an that troops were accompanied by an intelligence official who questioned the family about their son Samid, who has been wanted by intelligence for a month.
