BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained three Palestinians overnight across the West Bank, including a university student, residents and relatives told Ma'an.

Motaz Mazen al-Kawamleh, 21, from the Arrub refugee camp north of Hebron was detained as he was returning home from Ramallah at the Container checkpoint, relative Ahmad Zedan said.

The Palestinian Authority liaison office said al-Kawamleh was transferred immediately to the Ofer detention center near Ramallah.

Meanwhile, locals said Israeli forces erected two temporary checkpoints in the northern Jenin district on Saturday evening, detaining two Palestinians.

Locals said Ahmad Frehat, 21, was stopped in his car by Israeli forces at one of the flying checkpoints near the Bazaria village south of Jenin as he returned from the al-Khadouri University in Tulkarem. He was detained with Hassan Attieh Hassan Salahat, 22, from the Talouza village.

Frehat was held for an hour then transferred to an undisclosed location, locals added.

Residents also reported that Israeli forces erected a temporary checkpoint near the Arraba junction in the Jenin district, stopping dozens but making no arrests.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said the army was not familiar with the detentions in Bazaria or the setting-up of the flying checkpoint in Arraba.
