QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained four Palestinians between the ages of 14 and 17 during a raid on the town of Azzun, east of Qalqilya in the northern West Bank early Thursday morning.

Local sources in Azzun said that Israeli military vehicles raided the town around 2:00 a.m. and detained Mahmoud Adwan, 14, Munthir Salameh, 16, Madin Dahbour, 17, and Muhammed Rady, 16, and took them away after searching their houses.

An Israeli military spokesman said that there had been one arrest in the area overnight, but that it had occurred in the village of Kafr al-Deek south of Azzun.

Azzun is surrounded on all sides by areas under Israeli military control and an Israeli settlement bloc sits directly to the south. It has one of the highest rates of detainees per capita of all villages in the occupied West Bank, including many children.
