NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained six Palestinians overnight Saturday, a military representative said.

Troops also clashed with Palestinians in towns in the northern West Bank on Saturday evening.

At dawn, forces searched several homes in Burqa village, near Nablus, and detained Shadi Abu Omar, Fadi Abu Omar, and Munjed Daughlas.

Another man, Mousa Issa Abu Sabha, 24, was detained in a night raid on Yatta, south of Hebron.

An Israeli military spokesman said two people were detained in Burqa, two others in Arura, near Ramallah, and another in Beit Kahil and Yatta, in the Hebron district.

Also late Saturday night, Israeli forces surrounded the village of Azzun, near Qalqiliya, and fired tear gas, causing breathing difficulties amongst the residents, locals said, noting that settlers tried to enter the village.

An Israeli military source said around 50 Israelis gathered in the area, some tried to enter Azzun village and others throw rocks at Palestinians, lightly injuring one.

Israeli troops tried to disperse the settlers and prevent them entering the village, the source said.

Israeli troops also raided Burin village, south of Nablus, on Saturday evening, and fired tear gas, but no injuries were reported. An Israeli military spokesman said routine activity was conducted in the area, but he was not aware of any clashes.
