RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained eight people in the occupied West Bank overnight Tuesday, Israel's army and locals said.

Israeli forces raided the Ramallah village of Deir Nidham and detained Majdi Yousif Tamimi, Ibrahim Ahmad Assaf, Humam Muhammad Tamimi and Jabir Abdul-Khalid Mizhir, all aged between 17-22.

Palestinian security officials told Ma'an that Israeli forces damaged several houses during the raids.

In Jenin, Israeli forces detained Mohammad Taleb Abu Baker at a flying checkpoint at the eastern entrance to the village of Yabad.

Abu Baker, who works with Palestinian security services, was taken to an unknown location.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an that eight people were detained overnight, three in Hebron, three in Ramallah, and two in Jenin.
