BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces early Wednesday detained six Palestinian men and a woman in overnight arrest raids, security sources and an Israeli army spokesman said.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that Israeli troops raided al-Asakra village east of Bethlehem and detained 23-year-old Salah Sami Asakra and 24-year-old Iyad Ali Asakra.

Meanwhile, Israeli troops raided the nearby village of al-Ubayyat, ransacked homes in the area, and detained 30-year-old Muazzaz Khali Ubayyat, locals said.

In the Hebron district, Israeli forces stormed Beit Ula and detained Yousef al-Akil and his 21-year-old sister Samirah al-Akil after ransacking their home.

Israeli troops also raided Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank and detained 20-year-old Rukun Jamal Nashrati, witnesses said.

An Israeli army spokesman told Ma'an that seven Palestinians were detained overnight -- one in Nablus, one in Qalqiliya, one west of Ramallah, two in Bethlehem, two in a village west of Hebron, and one in Hebron.

The spokesman said that soldiers "uncovered a sniper rifle and ammunition" in the home of one of those arrested in Bethlehem.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
