BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided the Bethlehem area early Tuesday and detained a Palestinian man, locals said.

Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli forces raided the village of Husan and detained 20-year-old Diyaa Tahir Shawasha after ransacking his home.

Israeli forces also raided al-Khader village and forcibly entered several commercial stores.

Muhammad Mousa Naji Shehada told Ma'an that Israeli forces blew up one of the doors on the al-Naji Market which he owns, causing material damage.

Israeli forces arrived at the family-run shop at around 6:30 a.m. and took away Shehada's father before blowing open one of the doors.

The front door and an inner glass door were damaged, together with shelves inside.

Surveillance cameras recorded Israeli forces inside the store, but the purpose of the raid remains unclear.

In Bethlehem, Israeli forces confiscated several security cameras along the Hebron road, locals said.
