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

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.
