BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained at least four Palestinians during predawn raids on Friday in the occupied West Bank, according to official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency.

Wafa reported that Israeli forces raided the northern West Bank district of Jenin, and detained two Palestinians from the town of Qabatiya. Clashes erupted during the raid, with Israeli forces firing tear gas at locals.

In the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem, Israeli forces detained two Palestinians.
