Islamic Jihad says members detained by Israel overnight

Jan. 17, 2013 10:09 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 18, 2013 10:14 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Islamic Jihad said Thursday that Israel detained several of its members in overnight raids in the West Bank.

Israel targeted Islamic Jihad activists organizing solidarity events for hunger-striking prisoners, the movement said in a statement.

Prominent Islamic Jihad members Samer al-Ghoul, Bassam Dyab, Jalal Melhm, Ibrahim al-Swaiti and Muhanad Fayyad were among those detained, the movement added.

An Israeli military spokesman said six Palestinians were detained in overnight raids in Deir Istiya, Kafr Rai and Qalandia. He was not familiar with their political affiliations.

Earlier Wednesday, Israeli forces detained Islamic Jihad militant Awni Bani Udah in a raid on Rojib village near Nablus, locals and Islamic Jihad said.
