HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained two members of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), on Thursday, in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron while securing movement of Palestinian elementary school students.

Locals reported that Israeli forces detained the two international activists while near the Qurtuba School, adjacent to an illegal Israeli settlement, securing students' way out of their school.

The internationals were identified only as an American and an Italian activists, who were doing the work of members of the Temporary International Presence in Hebron (TIPH) as the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had decided last week not to extend their mandate, expelling them from the city.
