Mother and 14-year-old child among seven detained from West Bank


Israeli forces Tuesday overnight detained at least seven Palestinians, including a mother and her 14-year-old child, from various parts of the West Bank, according to local and security sources. They said that Israeli forces rounded up a prisoner’s wife along with her 14-year-old boy after storming their house in the town of Silat al-Harithiya, northwest of Jenin. The soldiers re-arrested the boy’s uncle, a former prisoner, from the same northern West Bank town. Still in Jenin district, the soldiers barged their way into Ya’bad town, southwest of the city, and set up a roadblock close to a local school, before detaining a university student who was heading to Kadoorie Technical College in Tulkarm. In the southern West Bank, the sources confirmed a raid in Husan town, west of Bethlehem, resulting in the detention of another.
