Israeli forces on Sunday detained ten Palestinians from across the occupied West Bank, locals and the Israeli army said.

In the Hebron-area village of Halhul, locals told Ma’an that the Israeli military raided the home of Imad al-Sada and detained his sons Suliman and Asem.

Nearby in the town of Beit Ummar, local activist Muhammad Ayyad Awad said that Israeli soldiers entered the Khallet al-Ein area of the town and stormed the home of Ibrahim Hamad Zamel abu Maria.

Israeli forces also raided the home of Ibrahim’s brother, Bilal, 27, before detaining him. Ibrahim said that Bilal was transferred to the Etzion military site for investigation, adding that his brother had served four years in Israeli jails previously.

An Israeli army spokesperson confirmed three arrests made in the Hebron area for “suspected illegal activity.”

Two suspected Hamas operatives were also detained from the city of Hebron, and five others detained from other areas of the West Bank.
