In an Israeli army raid of Jenin refugee camp today, soldiers detained a 41-year-old former prisoner who served 12 years in jail for resisting the occupation, after surrounding the house he was in, according to witnesses. He was one of eight Palestinians detained by the army in various areas of the occupied territories.

In the Hebron governorate in the south of the West Bank, soldiers detained three Palestinians, two of them from the town Surif and the third from Sair, according to Palestinian security and local sources.

Soldiers also detained one person from the town of Beit Rima, northwest of Ramallah, after raiding his family home.
