The detainees will be questioned by security forces, the army spokesman added.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces entered Kafr Qaddum, further east of Qalqiliya, and detained Moawiya Muhammad Amer, 19, Qais Muhammad Qaddoumi, 21, and Khader Fathi Juma, 23, local official Murad Shtewey said.

Shtewey said soldiers set up video cameras at the entrances to the town and ransacked the home of Kamal Dawoud Aqel.

He added that a large number of settlers surrounded the town during the raid.

A military spokesman said seven of those detained were from Azzun and Kafr Qaddum.
