NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least 20 Palestinians early Thursday in the occupied West Bank, an Israeli military spokeswoman said.

The Palestinian Prisoner's Society said in a statement that Israeli forces detained Oday Amin Muhammad from Nablus at Yitzhar checkpoint.

In Bethlehem, Israeli forces detained four teenage Palestinian boys from the southern West Bank village of Husan west of Bethelehem early Thursday morning, locals told Ma'an.

Eyewitness Hayda Hamamrah told Ma'an that dozens of Israeli soldiers stormed the village in military vehicles and ransacked several homes for inspection before they detained four teenagers.

He identified them as 17-year-old Haydar Iyad Hamamrah, 16-year-old Muhammad Hasan Hamamrah, 16-year-old Firas Ibrahim Hamamrah, and 17-year-old Bakr Shawasha.

The detainees were taken to an unknown destination.
