NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained eight Palestinians in overnight arrest raids, locals and Israel's army said.

In Nablus, Israeli forces detained Munjed Yahya Mabruk 26, from the al-Makhfiya area, whose father is in the Palestinian Preventive Security forces.

They also detained Ahmad Khalil, 40, from Balata refugee camp, Ahmad Muneir al-Asmar, 24, from Askar, and Raed Turki Khader, 26, from Deir Sharaf.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said four people were detained in the Nablus area, one in Aboud village near Ramallah, one in Jayyus, one in Dhahriya, and one in Deir Abu Mashal.

All suspects were detained for involvement in "illegal activity," the spokeswoman added, without providing further details.

Clashes erupted on Friday in Nablus following Palestinian protests against the Israeli separation wall near Huwwara checkpoint.

Israeli forces injured four Palestinians with rubber-coated steel bullets during the protests, including Taghrid Mohammad Faris Adieli, 32, and Fouad Adieli.
