JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian teenage boy from the northern occupied West Bank district of Jenin during predawn raids on Tuesday, according to locals. 

Locals in the village of Bartaa in southwestern Jenin told Ma’an that Israeli forces stormed the village in the predawn hours of Tuesday and detained 17-year-old Ali Abd al-Rahim Qabaha after ransacking his home.

An Israeli army spokesperson said that no Palestinians were detained in overnight raids in the West Bank. 

Israeli raids in Palestinian towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

The United Nations recorded an average of 95 weekly raids in the occupied West Bank in 2016, and an average of 70 raids a week so far 2017.

According to prisoners’ rights group Addameer, 6,300 Palestinians were held in Israeli prisons as of April, including 300 minors, 61 women, and 500 under administrative detention -- Israel's contested policy of imprisonment without charge or trial.
