NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained up to six Palestinian men across the West Bank overnight Sunday, the Israeli army and Palestinian security sources told Ma'an.

Palestinian security sources said that Israeli forces entered the village of Asira al-Shamaliya north of Nablus and took into custody 22-year-old Makin Muhammad Saadah from his house in the village center.

Meanwhile, Israeli police officers arrested two unidentified Palestinian men near the town of Beita south of Nablus, sources said.

They were reportedly handed over to Israeli forces who took them to a military base in the town of Huwwara south of Nablus.

An Israeli army spokeswoman could only confirm that one Palestinian had been detained in the Nablus district.

She also said that one Palestinian had been arrested in Tulkarem, one in Ramallah, and one in Bethlehem.

She said all four had been arrested for "terror activities."

Israeli forces routinely detain Palestinians throughout the West Bank, often on the pretext of a perceived security threat.

More than 6,000 Palestinian prisoners are currently being held in Israeli jails according to the Palestinian Prisoners' Society.
