JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained several Palestinians in overnight arrest raids across the West Bank, locals and a military spokesman said Sunday.

Locals told Ma'an Israeli troops stormed a village in the Jenin district in the northern West Bank and detained three Palestinian men, one of whom is an officer in the Palestinian Authority security forces.

Israeli forces ransacked several homes in the village of Jabaa and detained 18-year-old Muhammad Yasir Khalayla, 20-year-old Aws Muhammad Hamarnah, and 23-year-old Yaqub Mahmoud Alawnah, an officer for the PA security forces.

Meanwhile, in the village of al-Fureidis east of Bethlehem, Israeli forces detained 27-year-old Ayman Said Salahat.

Additionally, in al-Issawiya east of Jerusalem, Israeli forces ransacked several homes, causing damage, a local popular committee spokesman said.

Muhammad Abu al-Hummus said three Palestinians were detained -- Wahib Ubeid, Muhammad Ubeid, and Mufeed Ubeid.

Clashes broke out between youths and Israeli forces during the raid.

A military spokesman said the army detained six Palestinians overnight -- two in Jabaa, one in al-Fureidis, one in Bethlehem, one in Hebron, and one in Tawas near Hebron.
