TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday morning detained four Palestinians in the northern occupied West Bank district of Tulkarem, according to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS).
The director of the PPS' Tulkarem office, Ibrahim Nimr, identified the detainees as Yousif Hilmi Khalil, 36, from the town of Attil, Fadi Jarrar from Tulkarem city, Nasrallah Yasser Ofi, 24, and Basim Ahmad Ofi, 33, from Tulkarem refugee camp.
