JENIN (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday detained eight Palestinians in predawn arrest raids in the occupied West Bank, Palestinian sources and Israel’s army said.

Palestinian security sources told Ma’an that Muhammad Tawfiq Mahmoud Nazzal, 22, and Raouf Shuaa Zugheibi, 22, were detained from their homes in the northern city of Jenin.

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society said that Israeli soldiers also detained Maher al-Qawasmi, Mutaz al-Ewiwi And Raed Amr from Hebron, Ameed Adieli from Nablus, and 14-year-old Akram Yacoub Abu Dayya in Ramallah.

An Israeli army spokesperson was unable to confirm the Jenin arrests but told Ma’an that six were detained from across the occupied area.

Meanwhile late Saturday, an Israeli police spokesperson said in a statement that a Palestinian man from Lod in his 30’s from had been detained after Israeli forces found a gun and ammunition in his vehicle.

Luba al-Samri said that the man was pulled over at a flying checkpoint near Ramallah and taken in for investigation.

Two Palestinian minors were also detained Saturday, according to the spokesperson.

A 13-year-old and a 16-year-old were arrested after reportedly throwing stones at the light rail in the Shufat neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem, al-Samri said.

Around 6700 Palestinians are currently being held in Israeli jails, and well over 2000 have been detained since the beginning of October in an ongoing arrest campaign.
