NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained eight people in overnight arrest raids across the West Bank, locals and Israel's army said.
Israeli military jeeps stormed the Nablus village of Burqa at dawn and ransacked several homes before detaining Saddam Raghib Abu Durra, Ibrahim Mousa Abu Asbah, and Abdullah Khairullah Salah.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said four people were detained in Burqa, two in Nablus and two in Bethlehem.
Israeli forces raid the occupied West Bank on a nightly basis and arrest Palestinians, usually on the pretext of security questioning.
