In the southern West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil), Israeli soldiers detained Palestinian journalist Musab Qafishe, and two other people.

In the Ramallah governorate, Israeli soldiers detained four Palestinians from various villages, including the activist Fakhr Rantisi, a former prisoner, and Ahmed al-Naasan, a high-school student who was sitting for his “tawjihi” matriculation exam.

The forces also detained three people from Bethlehem city, including a 61-year-old man and his 28-year-old son, from the Dheisheh refugee camp.

Later reports on Monday said Israeli forces also detained two Palestinians from their homes in occupied East Jerusalem.
