NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces arrested 11 Palestinians in overnight detention raids across the occupied West Bank on Tuesday, locals and Israel's army said.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli troops stormed the northern West Bank city of Nablus early Tuesday and detained three youths.

Several Israeli military vehicles drove through the al-Dahiya and al-Taawon neighborhoods in the city after midnight and detained Anan Mahir Ubeid, Majdi Akkubah, and Ismail Aukal, locals said.

Meanwhile, in the Jenin district, locals said Israeli forces raided the village of Jabaa and detained four young Palestinians. Soldiers ransacked several homes and a bakery before arresting Ayman Fashafsha, Ahmad Khalilya, Shalash Shalash, and Hasan Khalilya.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said three Palestinians were detained in Jabaa, two in Nablus, two in the village of Qatanna near Ramallah, one in Dura near Hebron, two in Hebron, and one in Tubas.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
