HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided the West Bank overnight Wednesday and ransacked several homes before detaining four people, locals said.
Witnesses told Ma'an that 30 Israeli military vehicles raided the village of Deir Samit south of Hebron at 3 a.m. and broke into several homes.
The operation continued until daybreak, with several people detained.
In Nablus, Israeli soldiers detained Jihad Idreis Hassan, 23. Israeli soldiers fired gunshots and rubber-coated steel bullets during the arrest, injuring Hassan.
He was evacuated to hospital for treatment.
Yousif Jabir Abu Siyam, 23, was also detained.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said one person was detained in Nablus, one in Ramallah, and two in al-Jalazun refugee camp for "involvement in illegal activity."
Israeli military forces routinely raid the occupied West Bank and detain Palestinians, usually on the pretext of security questioning.
