NABLUS (Ma’an) — Israeli forces made multiple arrests overnight Sunday, witnesses and Israel’s army said.

Six people were detained in the Hebron district for security questioning, an Israeli army spokeswoman said.

Local witnesses told Ma’an that eight people were detained in Nablus overnight Sunday. Israeli military vehicles raided the village of Kafr Qalil after midnight, locals said.

Three people in the village were also issued summons orders to report to Israeli intelligence.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said there were no reports of any arrests in the Nablus district.

Palestinians living in the occupied territories are routinely arrested by Israeli forces, usually on the pretext of security.

Around 40 percent of Palestinian men living in the occupied territories have been detained by Israel at some point in their lives.
