JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided homes in a village south of Jenin early Tuesday, arresting over a dozen Palestinians, security sources said.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that 10 military vehicles raided the village of Anzah and soldiers detained 17 men, including an officer in the civil defense forces.

The detainees were identified as civil defense officer Imad Qasim Khadir, Muhannad Yaqub Sadaqa, his son Abd al-Rahman, Ahmad Zaki Sadaqa, Muhammad Khalid Sadaqa, Hasan Abd al-Salam Ubeido, Ashraf Marwan Khadir, Murshid Mufid Ali Sadaqa, Saeb Bilal Barahma, Hasan Osama Khadir, Muhammad Hashim Ubeido, Ahmad Faeq Amr, Mahdi Ziad Sadaqa, Bashir Said Sadaqa, Isam Hashim Barahma, Khalil Hashim Barahma, and Muhammad Nafi Umour.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said the army arrested seven Palestinians in the West Bank overnight -- two in Jenin, three in Husan near Bethlehem, one in the Nablus area, and one south of Hebron.

She said she was looking into reports of a large arrest raid in Anzah.
