BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least 18 Palestinians, including several minors, during predawn detention raids across the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem on Monday, according to to local and official sources.

In the northern West Bank city of Nablus, Israeli forces detained three Palestinians, identified by locals as Hamzeh Khweireh, Khalid al-Tawil and Muhammad al-Kawni.

Southeast of Nablus, in the town of Aqraba, Israeli forces delivered a demolition notice to the home of Abd al-Rahman Bani Fadel, who was killed by Israeli forces last month after he stabbed and killed and Israeli settler in the Old City of occupied East Jerusalem.

In the central West Bank district Jerusalem, Israeli forces detained Palestinians identified as Ali Amjad Attiyeh, minor Mahmoud Ashraf Ubeid, minor Saleh al-Fakhouri, Younis Sufian Ubeid, Rida Muhammad Khader Ubeid and minor Ismail Ali Assi.

Israeli forces detained one Palestinian “youth” from the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem, according to locals. He was identified as Mahmoud Muhammad Elayyan Thawabteh.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an that eight Palestinians were detained overnight from the West Bank.

Meanwhile, in the East Jerusalem Shufat refugee camp, Israeli forces detained two teenage girls and six young men for "illegally entering the city.”

Thaer Fasfous, spokesperson of the Fatah movement in Shufat, told Ma'an that more than 30 Israeli soldiers raided the refugee camp, entering several stores, a health center, and a pharmacy before detaining two teenage girls and six “youths,” all holders of West Bank ID cards.

Clashes erupted in different areas across the refugee camp before Israeli forces retreated.

Israeli forces transfer the detainees to an interrogation center where they were later released from on bail, under the condition that they do not enter East Jerusalem.
