JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 14 people early Tuesday morning in home raids across the West Bank, the army said.
An Israeli military spokesman told Ma'an that 14 "wanted Palestinians" were taken for security questioning, including four from Jenin.
Locals said soldiers raided Jenin refugee camp and detained two brothers Abdul Salam Abu al-Hayja, 32, and Hamza, 20, after ransacking their home. Their father, Hamas leader Jamal Abu Al-Hayja, is serving a life sentence in an Israeli jail.
Mahmoud Tawahin, 21, was also detained from the camp, locals said.
