Witnesses: Israel detains 11 Palestinians in overnight raids

March 10, 2014 2:44 P.M. (Updated: March 11, 2014 11:33 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a number of Palestinians in the West Bank in overnight arrest raids, locals and an army spokesperson told Ma'an.

Local sources said that Israeli troops raided the village of Tell south of Nablus and detained 23-year-old Walid Jamal.

Separately, Israeli soldiers raided Taawan street in southern Nablus and detained 24-year-old Ammar Abu Zarour, locals said.

Meanwhile, nine Palestinians were arrested in Hebron, identified by locals as Muhammad Khalil al-Jaabari, Thaer al-Jaabari, Safwan Majdi al-Jaabari, Sultan Ali al-Jaabari, Muhammad Hisham Jaafar, Iyad Jaafar, Umran Shukri al-Jaabari, Tamir Yaqin al-Jaabari and Kamal Abd al-Rahim al-Jaabari.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an that the army arrested four Palestinians overnight -- one south of Tulkarem, one in Tell, one in Nablus, and one in Hebron.

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.
