List of names of Palestinian individuals detained in overnight raids

June 15, 2014 9:35 A.M. (Updated: June 15, 2014 8:23 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli military expanded a campaign of arrests across the West Bank on Saturday night and Sunday morning, detaining 80 Palestinian individuals as part of a search for three disappeared settler youths.

The majority of the detained individuals were affiliated with Hamas and Islamic in some capacity, although their relationship to the case of the youth is unclear.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, however, has said that he hold the Palestinian Authority -- including Hamas -- responsible for the youths, who Israeli authorities believe have been kidnapped.

A spokesperson for the PA security forces said on Friday, however, that the PA was "not responsible" for protecting Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank, highlighting that the area in which the youths disappeared is under full Israeli control.
