JENIN (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained six Palestinians from the around the West Bank overnight, the army said, while locals reported at least four more were detained.

One person detained held in Jenin village al-Yammun, two in Nablus, two in Ramallah village Khirbet al-Masbah, and another person in Hebron, an army spokesman said.

Locals told Ma'an two Palestinians were seized in the raid on al-Yammun.

Mujahid Abu al-Hayja, whose brother Samid is wanted by Israeli forces, was detained from his home in the village. Their house has been repeatedly searched and his father was briefly detained last week as part of the manhunt, locals told Ma'an.

Forces also detained another Palestinian, 16-year-old Walid Abu al-Hayja, from the village, residents said.

In Beit Ummar, south of Bethlehem, Israeli forces seized three teenagers early Monday, local committee spokesman Muhammad Ayyad Awad said.

He identified the detainees as 17-year-old Muhammad Jamil Abu Mariya and 17-year-old Muhammad Ibrahim Abu Mariya, both of whom had been held in Israeli custody before, as well as 15-year-old Malik Yousif Duda.
