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.
