Israeli forces detain 11 Palestinians in overnight raids

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained eleven Palestinians in raids in the northern and southern West Bank early Wednesday morning, witnesses said.

Nine young Palestinian men were detained in two separate raids on the southern West Bank towns of Halhul and Idhna near Hebron overnight.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli forces stormed Halhul north of Hebron at dawn Wednesday and detained Muhannad Yousif Zamaarah, his brother Anan, and Ahmad Murshid Mansour.

Separately, Israeli troops stormed Idhna west of Hebron and detained 36-year-old Murshid Abdullah Tmeizi, Ziad Hasan Awwad, his son Izz Addin, Khalil Muhammad Awwad, Muhammad Ahmad Salih Awwad and his son Mahmoud.

An Israeli army spokeswoman, however, said that only two had been detained in Halhoul, while another Palestinian was detained in Bani Naim, east of Hebron.

On Wednesday morning Israeli forces also raided a village in the northern West Bank and detained two supporters of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Palestinian security sources told Ma'an.

The sources told Ma'an that Israeli troops raided Meithalun south of Jenin and ransacked the home of Fawwaz Salih Nueirat.

After inspecting the house, Israeli soldiers and intelligence officers detained Nueirat's sons Bashar, 34 and Yousif, 30.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that one Palestinian had been detained in the raid on Meithalun, and she added that another was detained in Illa, southwest of Jenin.

She said that Israeli forces "discovered two shotguns and one gun" during the raid, and that the items were subsequently confiscated.
