BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided several areas across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem overnight between Thursday and Friday, detaining two Palestinian teenagers, according to local Palestinian sources.

In the central West Bank district of Ramallah, local sources told Ma’an that Israeli forces raided the Beituniya town where they searched several homes in the area. No detentions were reported.

In East Jerusalem, locals reported that Israeli forces detained two teenagers identified as Mahmoud al-Awar, 16, and Islam al-Natsheh, 15. The two boys, both residents of the al-Issawiya neighborhood, were detained while in the Silwan neighborhood of East Jerusalem.

An Israeli police spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.

In the southern West Bank district of Hebron, Israeli forces raided the al-Arrub refugee camp, causing clashes to erupt between soldiers who fired live ammunition and Palestinian who threw stones.

An Israeli army said they were looking into reports.

Israeli raids in Palestinian towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, with a biweekly average of 85 search and detention raids carried out thus far in 2017, according to UN documentation.

According to prisoners’ rights group Addameer, 6,279 Palestinians were detained by Israel as of August. The group has estimated that some 40 percent of Palestinian men will be detained by Israel at some point in their lives.
