JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained three Palestinians during predawn raids in the occupied West Bank on Friday, according to Palestinian and Israeli sources.

Locals in the northern West Bank district of Jenin told Ma’an that Israeli forces raided the town of Yaabad and detained two former prisoners.

The two were identified as Mahmoud Bassam Hamarsheh and Khalid Zaki Abdullah Abu Bakr.

A third Palestinian detainee was also reportedly detained from the Jenin area and identified by locals as Nour Mahmoud Qabha, though his hometown was not identified.

Official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency reported that three Palestinians were detained from Yaabad, while another was detained from the nearby town of Qabatiya.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed three detentions to Ma’an.

According to United Nations documentation, Israeli forces conducted 166 search and arrest operations across the West Bank between October 24 and November 26.

Meanwhile, prisoners’ rights group Addameer recorded 6,198 Palestinians were detained by Israel as of October. The group has estimated that some 40 percent of Palestinian men will be detained by Israel at some point in their lives.
