Israeli forces detain 3 Palestinians in Jenin village

Dec. 7, 2013 12:00 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 7, 2013 4:16 P.M.)
JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces entered a Palestinian village in the northern West Bank district of Jenin late Friday and detained three men, locals told Ma'an.

Soldiers in the the northernmost West Bank village of Zububa detained Hasan Abu Zaytoun, Ahmad Fathi Amarnah, and Saad Muhammad Jaradat after raiding their houses, witnesses said.

Locals said they saw four Israeli military vehicles driving around the village before the arrests took place.

The detainees reportedly live near Israel's separation wall, which surrounds Zububa on three sides. The village is also close to Israel's Salem military base.

Following the arrests, witnesses said clashes broke out between local Palestinians and Israeli forces. No injuries were reported.

An Israeli army spokeswoman could not confirm the details of the incident.

"I know of one person being detained in the area," the spokeswoman told Ma'an.
