HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained nine Palestinians in the Hebron district overnight Sunday, locals and Israel's army said.

Israeli forces raided two homes in Hebron and detained Nidal and Rajih al-Juneidi, witnesses told Ma'an. Raed Ali Zuhur was arrested in Beit Kahil, Khalil Sabarnah in Beit Ummar and Jihad Sharawnah in Deir Samit.

Zuhur and Nidal and Rajih al-Juneidi are affiliated to the Islamic Jihad movement, locals said.

Sharawnah was detained after Israeli military and intelligence officers raided and searched his home before taking him to an unknown location.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said nine Palestinians were detained overnight, three in Hebron, two in Jenin, one in Nablus, one in Ramallah, one in Tulkarem and one in Beit Ummar.

Israeli military forces routinely arrest Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, usually on the pretext of security questioning.
