BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces carried out predawn raids across the occupied West Bank on Wednesday, detaining 23 Palestinians, according to the Israeli army.

The army said in a statement that the detainees were detained “for security reasons,” and also claimed that during a raid on a toy store in the northern West Bank city of Jenin, soldiers allegedly found 15 weapons.

While the army did not provide the identities of the detainees or the locations from which they were arrested, locals in the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem told Ma’an that three Palestinians were detained.

Locals said that Israeli forces carried out search and detention raids in Bethlehem city, where they assaulted and detained a Palestinian identified as Muhammad Fayez al-Dibs.

In the Bethlehem-area Husan village, Israeli forces detained two teenagers identified as Ismail Hasan Hamamreh, 19, and Yazan Khalid Badr Shusheh, 19, after raiding and searching their homes.

Israeli forces also raided the al-Arroub refugee camp in the northern Hebron district and detained a former prisoner identified as Said Thib Hajajreh, and two “children,” identified as Ammar Muhammad Mahmoud Jawabreh and Ibrahim Ahmad Jawabreh.

According to United Nations documentation, Israeli forces conducted 147 search and arrest operations across the West Bank between November 7 and November 20.

Meanwhile, 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.
