Israel briefly detains 6 Palestinian teens from Hebron during clashes

Dec. 30, 2017 2:53 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 2, 2018 1:36 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces temporarily detained six Palestinian teenagers on Friday during clashes in the city of Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank.

Palestinian security sources told Ma’an that Israeli forces arrested Alaa Bassam Ramadan Abu Madi, 15, Amir Munjed Nader Abu Assab, 15, and Mutaz Haitham Muhammad Asaad, 16, Muhyi Jihad Khalawi Zaid, 14, Muhammad Judeh Rashid al-Tawil, 15, and Ahmad Ali Abdullah Taha, 18.

The six teenagers were released after hours of detention.

Clashes had erupted in the city after Israeli forces suppressed protests against US President Donald Trump’s decision earlier this month to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

According to Ma’an documentation, 14 Palestinians have been killed by Israel since the announcement.

Thousands of others have been injured, while Israeli forces, according to the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society, have detained close to 700 Palestinians since the announcement.

Palestinian and Arab leaders had warned Trump of causing instability and unrest in the region.
