HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian man and a teenager in the town of Beit Ummar in the southern West Bank early on Sunday morning, a local spokesman told Ma'an.

Muhammad Ayyad Awad from the local committee against Israel's wall and settlements said that several Israeli military vehicles stormed Beit Ummar and ransacked several houses in the town's eastern neighborhood.

The soldiers then detained 17-year-old Muhammad Zuheir al-Allami and 35-year-old Ahmad Muhammad al-Allami.

Awad added that Israeli soldiers detonated stun grenades inside some of the houses during the raid, "terrifying children, men and elderly people."

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that soldiers had detained only one person doing the raid in Beit Ummar, adding that soldiers found "bullets and a pipe bomb," as well as a "magazine for a firearm" during the raid.

Beit Ummar sees frequent clashes, most recently in mid-March, as Israeli forces regularly block the main road into the village.
