Israeli soldiers question Palestinians on Arrub College's campus
HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces raided Arrub College adjacent to al-Arrub refugee camp in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron on Sunday morning, in response to alleged rock throwing by local Palestinians at passing Israeli cars, local sources said.

An Israeli army spokesperson, who said she was unfamiliar with the incident, told Ma'an she was looking into the case.

Israel detains hundreds of Palestinians for alleged stone throwing every year.

Palestinian stone throwers face harsh penalties by Israeli authorities, with Israel passing a laws in 2015 allowing for up to 20 years in prison if charged with throwing stones at vehicles and a minimum of three years for the act of throwing a stone at an Israeli -- legislation rights groups say was designed specifically to target Palestinians, as Israelis and settlers are rarely prosecuted under the same standards of the law.
