HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided two Palestinian homes on Friday at dawn in the southern occupied West Bank town of Beit Ummar in the northern Hebron district.

Local activist Muhammad Ayyad Awad told Ma’an that Israeli forces raided two homes belonging to brothers Iyad and Rami Bassam Khalil Zaaqiq.

Israeli forces raided and searched the homes allegedly looking for weapons.

During the raid, soldiers held the families in one room of one house.

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

Israeli forces often search and ransack homes, typically in the middle of the night, allegedly in search of weapons.
