JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Israeli soldiers raided a Jerusalem-area village overnight Tuesday and arrested 10 people, locals said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that around 100 Israeli soldiers raided the village of Beit Duqqu, northwest of Jerusalem, and searched dozens of homes.

Musa Mohammad Hassan, 20, Shadi Suleiman Abdul Munem, 28, Basheer Murar, 22, Abdul Fattah Darwish, 25, Hashan Khalil Ali Hussain, 25, Jalal Khalil Ali Hussain, 19, Ahmad Issa Ali Hussain, 22, Ali Issa Ali Hussain, 22, Naseem Ahmad Ali Hussain, 19, and Mohammad Abdul Nasser Ali Hussain, 19, were identified by locals as those arrested.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said 18 people were detained overnight, 10 in Beit Duqqu, three in Ramallah, three in Hebron, one in Bethlehem and one in Qalqiliya.

Palestinians in the occupied West Bank are routinely arrested by Israel's army, usually under the pretext of security.
