BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces arrested 10 people in the West Bank overnight, Israel's army and locals said.

Israeli military vehicles entered the Salfit village of Yasuf and arrested Thaer Naim Said, 25, locals told Ma'an.

Soldiers also raided the Nablus village of Bizzariyya in Nablus and detained two young men. Witnesses said that 15 military vehicles raided the village at 2 a.m. and arrested Akram Marwan Hussein, 21, and Ahmad Nasar Masoud Nasar, 19.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said 10 people were detained overnight for "illegal activity," without providing further details.

Two people were detained near Jenin, two in Nablus, two in Ramallah, three in Hebron and one in Aida refugee camp in Bethlehem, she said.

Villagers in Yasuf said that settlers had also raided the village overnight and punctured the tires of three vehicles. They also sprayed graffiti on the wall of several homes, villagers added.
