JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided East Jerusalem and nearby villages overnight, arresting 18 Palestinians, local officials said Monday.

Popular committee spokesman Muhammad Abu al-Hummus told Ma'an Israeli troops and intelligence officers raided the al-Isawiya neighborhood of Jerusalem and detained five Palestinians.

Meanwhile, a Palestinian was detained in nearby Shufat refugee camp, a local Fatah spokesman said.

Thaer Abed Rabbu told Ma'an that Israeli forces raided Shufat refugee camp and detained Mutee Abu al-Zayid as clashes broke out at the entrance of the camp.

Israeli forces also raided villages east of Jerusalem overnight, arresting 12 Palestinians, a local official said Monday.

Sami Abu Ghaliya, secretary-general of the Jahalin Bedouin, told Ma'an Israeli soldiers raided Abu Dis, al-Eizariya, al-Sawahira, and Arab al-Jahalin overnight.

The forces raided and searched al-Quds University, two mosques, shops, and houses amid clashes with Palestinians, Abu Ghaliya said.

Soldiers fired tear gas, sound bombs, live fire, and rubber-coated steel bullets at locals, he said.

He identified those detained as Hani Abu Halabiya, Ashraf Dweik, Rami Abu Rumi, Ali Abu Ziyad, Jamil Abu Ziyad, Mahdi Qtmeira, Mopussa Faroun, Jamil Abu Hilal, Ahmad Ayyad, Mahmoud Jaffal, Laith Jaffal, and Mahmoud Ireiqat.

An spokesman for the Israeli police did not answer calls seeking comment.

The raids come amid an ongoing Israeli military campaign to find three missing Israeli teenagers.

Israeli forces have killed five Palestinians while conducting arrest operations, including two men shot dead on Sunday.

Israel accuses Hamas of kidnapping three Israeli teenagers from Gush Etzion settlement near Bethlehem, but the Islamist movement denies involvement.
