BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least three Palestinians from areas across the West Bank in predawn raids on Thursday.

Israeli soldiers detained two Palestinian youths from the Aida refugee camp in northern Bethlehem.

Locals identified the detainees as Muath Muhammad Abu Aker, 25, and Ahmad Marie Daamseh; the two were detained after Israeli forces raided and searched their family homes.

Sources in the Nur Shams refugee camp of eastern Tulkarem said that Israeli forces had raided the refugee camp and detained one Palestinian youth identified as Baraa Fathi Qaraawi.

The Israeli Shin Bet had declared on Wednesday that they detained a Palestinian suspected of dropping a marble slab that caused the death of an Israeli soldier in the al-Amaari refugee camp in the Ramallah and al-Bireh district.

The Palestinian was identified as Islam Youssef Abu Hmeid, 32; Abu Hmeid was detained after Israeli forces raided the refugee camp which caused clashes to erupt.

Nine Palestinians, including Abu Hmeid’s mother, were injured during clashes.

Israeli military raids into Palestinian cities, towns, and refugee camps are a near daily occurrence.
