BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least nine Palestinians and confiscated weapons and money during overnight raids across the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli army said, in a statement, that three weapons were found and confiscated during a search raid of a Palestinian house in the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

A Ma'an reporter said that Israeli forces detained three Palestinians identified as Hussam Ragheb al-Eweiwi, Said al-Nammoura and Wael Ribie from Dura City in the Hebron district.

Israeli forces delivered a summon notice to meet with the Israeli intelligence to former prisoner al-Ghadanfar Abu Atwan from Hebron.

Israeli forces also detained four Palestinians from occupied East Jerusalem on Friday dawn.

Sources identified them as Mahmoud al-Tiryaqi, Rashiq al-Rashq, Abdullah al-Joulani and Mahdi Abu Diab.

Locals said that Israeli forces detained a Palestinian youth, identifying him as Yahiya Taqi al-Din Hutari, from his family house in the Kafr Saba neighborhood of Qalqiliya City in the northern West Bank.

Meanwhile, a Palestinian youth identified as Saad Taysir Islim from the Azzun town in the same district, turned himself in to Israeli forces at a military checkpoint set up at the entrance of the town.

Islim has been wanted and chased by Israeli forces for several months; Israel has also been reportedly threatening and assaulting his family if he does not turn himself in.
