NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained one Palestinian from the northern West Bank district of Nablus, during predawn raids on Friday.

Locals said that Israeli forces raided a historical site in the Sabastiya town in northern Nablus and detained one youth whom they identified as Ibrahim al-Shaer.

Sources added that clashes often erupt in the area between Israeli soldiers and Palestinian youths as several Israeli settlers escorted by army officers raid the town.

Israeli raids into Palestinian towns and villages are near daily occurrence in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, there are 5,820 Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli prisons.

The village of Sabastiya, located some 12 kilometers outside the city of Nablus, is the site of ancient ruins dating back 3,000 years, and was listed in the Oslo Accords among the archaeological sites of importance to Israel and designated a "national park."
