BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained several Palestinians across the West Bank overnight, locals and an army spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers arrested at least eight Palestinian youths early Tuesday.

Israeli forces stormed Bethlehem and arrested 26-year-old Muhammad Jamal Abu Jalgheif from the Wadi Shain neighborhood, 22-year-old Muhammad Issa al-Hremim from the al-Saf neighborhood, and 17-year-old Muhammad Jamal al-Azza from Azza refugee camp, locals said.

Meanwhile, Israeli troops raided Beit Fajjar south of Bethlehem and detained Husam Thawabtah, 15, and Khaled Muhammad Thawabtah, 14. Both were taken to Gush Etzion detention center for interrogation, locals said.

In Hebron, Israeli forces detained three Palestinians -- Nouh Robin Hashlmoun and Maamoun Khadir Abi Snineh, both 25, and a third unidentified man.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said six Palestinians were detained in the West Bank overnight -- one in Bilin, one near Qalqiliya, and four in Hebron.
