NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 10 Palestinians in overnight arrest raids across the West Bank, locals and Israel's army said.
In Nablus, Israeli forces raided Huwwara and detained Suleiman Abdul-Rahim Abu Shehadah, 31, Karam Mahir Dmeidi, 32, Abdul-Halim Said Dmeidi, 28, Khader Udah, 31, and Abdul-Latif Said Dmeidi, 35.
Israeli forces raided the nearby village of Beita and detained Bashir Yahya Dweikat, 20, Luay Tayseer Dweikat, 17, and Salim Mustafa Hamayil, 17, witnesses said.
In Qalqiliya, Israeli forces raided a coffee shop in the village of Azzun and detained Udayy Hamza Abdul-Halim Hussein, 23, and Ahmad Yousif Salamah Salim, 23.
Israeli forces had raided the village days earlier and summoned both men to appear for questioning with Israeli intelligence officers.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said five people were detained overnight, three in Ramallah and two in Azzun.
Israeli military forces routinely raid the occupied West Bank and detain Palestinians, usually under the pretext of security questioning.
