BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained eight Palestinians, including minors, during predawn raids on Sunday in several areas across the occupied West Bank, according to official Palestinian Authority-owned Wafa news agency.

In the northern West Bank, Wafa reported that Israeli soldiers detained a Palestinian “youth” from the Tulkarem district.

Three high school students were detained from the Ramallah-area village of Nabi Saleh in the central West Bank, according to Wafa.

Meanwhile, in the southern West Bank district of Hebron, Wafa reported that Israeli forces detained four Palestinians, including a 14-year-old, after raiding and searching several homes in the town of Beit Ummar.

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

According to United Nations documentation, Israeli forces conducted 166 search and arrest operations across the West Bank between October 24 and November 26.

Meanwhile, prisoners’ rights group Addameer recorded 6,198 Palestinians were detained by Israel as of October. The group has estimated that some 40 percent of Palestinian men will be detained by Israel at some point in their lives.
