BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained six Palestinians before dawn on Tuesday across the occupied West Bank, according to Palestinian and Israeli sources.

In the northern West Bank, Palestinian sources reported that Israeli forces raided the Burqin town in the Jenin district and detained a “youth,” identified as Ahmad Ateeq.

In the Nablus district, Israeli forces detained three Palestinians from the village of Salem, where forces allegedly found weapons during the raid.

Israeli forces also detained two Palestinians from the Balata refugee camp in eastern Nablus, as the two were passing near the Zaatara checkpoint in the southern Nablus district. One of them was identified as Samih Abu Arqoub, a former prisoner.

Another former prisoner was detained while at a checkpoint between Nablus and Jenin and was identified as Atallah Hashash. Hashash had previously spent 15 years in Israeli jails.

Israeli forces also raided the Beit Fajjar town in the Bethlehem district in the southern West Bank, where they searched several homes in the town.

One of the houses was identified as Ibrahim Abu Habes Deiriyeh’s home. Israeli soldiers delivered a summons notice to Deiriyeh's son Imad, 25, to meet with Israeli intelligence officials.

Another Palestinian from Beit Fajjar identified as Muhammad Akram Taqatqa, 26, was also delivered a similar notice.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed the six detentions to Ma’an.

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

Meanwhile, 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.
