HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers held a Palestinian journalist and an activist in the al-Shuhada Street in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, on Wednesday, as they were documenting the soldiers’ violations against Palestinians.

Palestinian activist with Defenders of Human Rights, Badie Dweik, said that Israeli settlers held journalist Amer al-Shaludi, and Defenders of Human Rights activist Zeidan al-Sharabati for more than one hour.

Dweik added that al-Shaludi and al-Sharabati were documenting Israeli soldiers’ firing tear-gas bombs and stun grenades towards Palestinians.

Israeli soldiers had also sealed off the military checkpoint leading to the al-Shuhada Street, preventing residents from entering.

Dweik said that Israeli soldiers confiscated his camera and mobile phone.
