NABLUS (Ma’an) — Israeli forces made multiple arrests overnight Sunday and Monday morning in several districts across the West Bank, the Israeli army and Palestinian police said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said six men were detained in Hebron, two southeast of Qalqiliya and two southwest of Bethlehem in the village of Umm Salamuna.

Palestinian police said in a statement, however, that nine men were detained across the West Bank, seven of whom were named.

Five were detained in Hebron, three north of Ramallah and one in the Qalqiliya district, police said.

Handhalah Yousif Rashid, 18, Majd Walid Abu An-Nujoum, 18, and Ramzi Hisham Natour were detained at a flying checkpoint Israeli forces erected at the entrance to Turmusayya, near Ramallah, the statement said.

In Hebron, Israeli forces erected a checkpoint near the Ibrahimi Mosque and detained 16-year-old Tariq Irsheid, police said.

Israeli forces also detained 37-year-old Farouq Issa Ashour and Hasan Badawi Abu Sneina, 21, from Hebron. Police identified the man detained in Qalqiliya as 34-year-old Fahd Ali al-Sheikh.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said the men will be taken for routine security questioning.

The prisoner rights group Addameer estimates that Israel has jailed 650,000 Palestinians since 1967.
