JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 4 Palestinians during pre dawn raids Friday in the Jenin district of the northern occupied West Bank.

Locals in the town of al-Yamoun, north of Jenin city, told Ma’an that Israeli forces detained four Palestinians from the town after raiding and searching several homes.

The detainees were identified as brothers Jihad and Abd al-Qader Freihat. Israeli forces confiscated mobile phones and surveillance camera recordings from their house during the raid.

Two other residents of al-Yamoun, identified as Yahiya Abu al-Haija and Mustafa al-Karam. The two were detained during a raid on the Jenin refugee camp, where they were reportedly visiting relatives.

A Palestinian from the Wadi Burqin neighborhood of Jenin, just outside the Jenin refugee camp, was killed during a predawn raid on Thursday.

The slain Palestinian, Ahmad Ismail, 30, was killed during an alleged shootout, as Israeli forces were conducting raids in search of Palestinians allegedly suspected to be involved in the shooting of an Israeli settler last week near Nablus.
