NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained nine Palestinians across the occupied West Bank overnight Sunday, Israel's army and locals said.
Witnesses told Ma'an that Israeli military vehicles raided the Balata refugee camp in Nablus and detained 44-year-old Jabir Uweis and 32-year-old Iyad al-Kaabi.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said that five people were arrested in Tuqu near Bethlehem, three in Nablus and one in Budrus, for "involvement in illegal activity," without providing further details.
