RAMALLAH (MA'an) -- Israeli forces detained four Palestinians, including a teenager, during predawn raids on Saturday across the occupied West Bank, according to local Palestinian sources.

In the northern West Bank district of Jenin, locals from the town of Yaabad told Ma’an that Israeli forces detained former prisoner Taher Jawad Badarneh, 23, and Qassem Khalid Abu Bakr, 16, after raiding and searching their homes.

In the Nablus district, Israeli forces detained Ahmad Husni Jaradat while he was passing through a flying checkpoint near the town of Sebastiya. Jaradat, according to locals, is from the Jenin-area town of Silat al-Harthiya.

In the southern West Bank district of Hebron, Israeli forces detained Musaab al-Sweiti from the Beit Awwa town.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an they did not have records of overnight detentions for the time between Friday night and Saturday morning.
