The teens were identified as brothers Muhammad, 15, and Ahmad Mahmoud Saleh Moussa, 13, Muhammad Saoud Sbeih, 15, and Yazan Abed al-Rahim al-Masri, 13.

In the Hebron district, Israeli forces also detained a former prisoner from Hebron city, identified by locals as Rizq al-Rajoub, and his son Ahmad, who is also a former prisoner.

Israeli forces confiscated Ahmad al-Rajoub's vehicle as well.

Meanwhile, Israeli news website Ynet reported that a 16-year-old Palestinian boy was detained Monday morning at the Ibrahimi mosque in the old city of Hebron for allegedly hiding a gun. He was taken in for questioning by Israeli forces.

Locals identified the teen as Mutasem Nasser Abu Irmeileh.

According to United Nations documentation, Israeli forces conducted 147 search and arrest operations across the West Bank between November 7 and November 20.
