HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces arrested 15 Palestinians overnight, Palestinian security sources and an Israeli army spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Security sources said Israeli forces raided Hebron and detained Abdullah Ahmad Suleiman Abu Snineh and Taleb Ahmad al-Jamal after ransacking their houses.

Israeli soldiers also detained ex-prisoner and Hamas leader Hashem Taim al-Rujub in the Hebron-area town of Dura, the sources said.

Meanwhile, a local popular committee spokesman said Israeli troops raided Beit Ummar and detained 25-year-old Ibrahim Ahmad Mustafa Awad and 28-year-old Safwat Samir Ayish Ekhlil.

The spokesman, Muhammad Awad, added that Israeli forces entered houses and delivered notices for several other Palestinians to appear for interrogation at Israeli intelligence centers.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said 15 Palestinians were detained overnight.
