BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained at least eight Palestinians, including a journalist, during predawn raids on Wednesday from across the occupied West Bank.

According to the Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS), in the southern West Bank district of Bethlehem, one Palestinian was detained and identified as Awadallah Adel al-Umour.

PPS confirmed that Israeli forces detained a reporter for Palestine TV, Ali Dar Ali; Dar Ali was detained after Israeli forces raided his home in the central West Bank district of Ramallah.
