BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 42 Palestinians across the West Bank overnight, the army said Wednesday.

An Israeli army spokesman told Ma'an 41 of the Palestinians who were arrested were "Hamas operatives" and that the arrests were "part of the ongoing operation."

Ten Palestinians were arrested from Hebron, the Ahrar Center for Human Rights said in a statement.

The center identified the men as Rizq Rajoub, Ahmad al-Qeeq, Jawad al-Karaki, Fathi al-Joulani, Bilal al-Muhtasib, Munthir al-Juba, Jaal al-Awawda, Muhammad Zameara, Kayid Atawnah, and Muhammad Awawda.

Rajoub is a former prisoner released as part of the Shalit deal, the statement said.

In Nablus, Israeli forces detained Abdullah al-Ekir, Ahmad Dawla, Samih al-Asmar, Anan Bushkar, Omar Abu Khamis, Eyhab Zeid, Omar Darawsha.

Al-Ekir is a former prisoner released as a part of the Shalit deal.

In the village of Aqraba, forces arrested Omar Mayadma, the statement said.

In Ramallah-district villages, meanwhile, Israeli forces detained Khalid Gheithan, female activist Bushra Tawil, Yousef Muhammad Dar Mousa, and his brother Saddam.

Gheithan is a former prisoner released as a part of the Shalit deal.
