JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces overnight detained two Palestinians in the Jenin district overnight, security sources and an army spokesman said.
Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that Muhammad Tariq al-Saadi was detained after Israeli soldiers raided his house in Jenin refugee camp.
Locals added that Israeli forces ransacked their houses in Jenin and the nearby village of Yaabad.
An Israeli army spokesman said the army conducted "routine activity" in Yaabad, without elaborating.
In Jenin refugee camp, he said Israeli forces arrested two Palestinians overnight.
Soldiers arrived at the camp to make an overnight arrest, and "a riot erupted," the spokesman said.
He said Palestinians hurled stones and "improvised explosive devices," in addition to firing live bullets at Israeli soldiers.
Soldiers responded by arresting "a second Palestinian" and using "riot dispersal means."
No injuries on either side were reported.
