QALQILIYA (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained a 25-year-old in northern West Bank who was released from jail a week earlier, relatives told Ma'an on Wednesday.
Momen Adwan responded to a summons from Israeli intelligence services on Monday morning but never returned, his family said. Residents of his village, Azzun near Qalqiliya, told Ma'an he was released last week after spending three years in Israeli detention.
His family said they believe he has been detained again and is being held in Huwara prison, south of Nablus.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the incident.
Forces detained another man from Azzun, 29-year-old Ahmad Radwan, overnight Tuesday, villagers said. An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was not aware of any military activity in the village.
Meanwhile, Palestinians hurled three firebombs at an Israeli bus near Ariel settlement Tuesday night, and forces launched a search in the area, she added.
Five Palestinians were detained overnight, she said. Israeli soldiers detained Raed Tahayneh, 25, from his Jenin home, after deploying through the northern West Bank city, Palestinian security officials said.
The army spokeswoman said one person was detained in Jenin overnight, while two were detained in Nur Shams camp in Tulkarem, and another in Nablus, and in Salfit.
