RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces stormed the central West Bank village of Nabi Saleh on Sunday night and detained a 40-year-old schoolteacher, one of five detained overnight.

Eyewitnesses said forces seized Nasser Abdul-Qadir Tamimi, a teacher at the village’s preparatory school, after ransacking his home.

He has been detained three times before and served several years in Israeli custody.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said four others were detained in the West Bank overnight, two in Abud village near Ramallah and one in nearby Silwad, and another in Bethlehem-area Doha.
