JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least 10 Palestinians in overnight raids between Tuesday and Wednesday, Palestinian and Israeli sources said.

In the northern occupied West Bank district of Jenin, locals told Ma’an that Israeli forces detained Abd al-Nasser Jaradat and Kamil Hussam Jaradat from the village of Zububa, while Yasser Mustafa Hanoun and Qasim al-Hajj were detained from the Jenin refugee camp.

Hanoun was detained after responding to a summons from Israeli intelligence forces, while al-Hajj was detained near the illegal settlement of Kaddim close to the city of Jenin.

An Israeli army spokesperson only confirmed the two detentions in Zububa.

Elsewhere in the northern West Bank, the army said that one Palestinian was detained in the Tulkarem refugee camp, while two alleged Hamas members were detained in the village of Immatin in the Qalqiliya district.

In the central West Bank district of Jerusalem, the army reported one detention in the village of Qatanna, while another Palestinian was detained in the Bethlehem-area refugee camp of Aida, and another in the Hebron district.

Israeli military raids in Palestinian towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the occupied West Bank. The UN recorded an average of 95 weekly raids in the occupied West Bank in 2016, and 78 weekly raids on average thus far in 2017.

Approximately 6,300 Palestinians are currently held in Israeli prisons, including some 300 minors, and 500 Palestinians who have not been charged or tried, according to Palestinian prisoners’ rights group Addameer.
