BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained at least four Palestinians during predawn raids on Friday in the occupied West Bank, according to official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency.

Wafa reported that Israeli forces raided the northern West Bank district of Jenin, and detained two Palestinians from the town of Qabatiya. Clashes erupted during the raid, with Israeli forces firing tear gas at locals.

In the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem, Israeli forces detained two Palestinians.

Locals told Ma’an that Israeli soldiers detained Shadi Muhammad Abdullah al-Hreimi, 29, from the al-Saff Street in Bethlehem city after raiding and searching his father’s home.

Sources added that Israeli forces also detained Walid Jadallah, 40, after raiding his store in the city.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an that only three Palestinians were detained overnight.

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

According to United Nations documentation, Israeli forces conducted 196 search and arrest operations across the West Bank, including nine children, between October 10 and October 23.
