HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces arrested 13 Palestinians in the Hebron district overnight, locals said Tuesday.

Witnesses said soldiers in Hebron raided the house of Palestinian lawyer Rajab Dandis and detained him and his brother Sufyan late Monday.

Israeli forces also detained Issam Abu Eisha and former prisoner Muhannad Nayroukh in the city.

Additionally, soldiers raided stores in the al-Mahawir, al-Bassa, and al-Hawooz neighborhoods of Hebron, searching the premises and confiscating security camera recordings.

In the village of Beit Kahil north of Hebron, soldiers arrested Muhammad Othman Abriyush, locals said.

Meanwhile, in the nearby village of Beit Awwa, Israeli troops detained Ibrahim Muhammad Sweiti, his son Ali, Dawood Kathim Sweiti, and Issa Muhammad Abu Jamal.

Detentions were also reported in al-Arrub refugee camp north of Hebron. Locals said soldiers detained Amir Muhammad al-Titi, Ramzi al-Badawi, Imad Jawabrah, and Muhib al-Najmi.

Clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinians in the camp. Three were hit by rubber-coated bullets while others suffered from tear gas inhalation.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an only four Palestinians were arrested overnight in the West Bank.

Tuesday marks the 12th day since three Israeli teenagers disappeared from the Gush Etzion settlement near Bethlehem.

The ongoing military search operation for the missing Israelis in the West Bank is widely considered to be the most extensive deployment since the Second Intifada.

Over 500 Palestinians have been arrested since the operation began, according to the Palestinian Prisoners' Society.

Israeli forces have killed five Palestinians and injured dozens throughout the operation.
