RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces have detained over a hundred Palestinians in the West Bank since Saturday night, a prisoners' rights group said Sunday.

The Palestinian Prisoner's Society said that 46 have been detained in Hebron, 23 in Nablus, 16 in Ramallah, 12 in Jenin, four in Bethlehem, five in Tulkarem, five in Qalqiliya, five in Jerusalem, six in Tubas, and two in Salfit.

The Israeli army said earlier Sunday that its soldiers had detained approximately 80 Palestinians overnight amid a search for three teenagers who disappeared from nearby the Gush Etzion settlement Thursday night.
