Israeli forces detained six Palestinians in the West Bank overnight, local popular committee sources and an army spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Muhammad Ayyad Awad, spokesman for Beit Ummar's popular committee, told Ma'an Israeli forces raided the town of Sair in the Hebron district and detained Thair Rida al-Shalalda.

Clashes broke out during the raid, and Ishaq al-Shalalda was injured by Israeli troops and taken to the hospital for treatment, Awad said.

He added that soldiers entered Beit Ummar and detained 18-year-old Muhammad Nawwaf Muhammad Adi and 17-year-old Ali Sami Hasan Adi while they were picking fruit from trees on their agricultural lands.

Soldiers also detained Salah Hasaniya during a raid on al-Arrub refugee camp in northern Hebron, he said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma'an that soldiers arrested six Palestinians in the West Bank overnight -- one in Qalandia, one in al-Amari refugee camp, one northwest of Bethlehem, two in al-Arrub refugee camp, and one northwest of Ramallah.
