Israeli activist arrested near Ramallah

Bethlehem – Ma'an/Agencies – The Israeli army arrested an Israeli peace activist near Ramallah on Friday, news reports said.

The Hebrew-language daily Yedioth Ahronoth reported that Jonathan Pollak, an Israeli citizen and anti-wall movement organizer, was detained in the Ramallah-area village of Dir Nezam during a protest there.

He was reportedly being held on the pretext that he violated an army order and entered Area A, a West Bank designation off-limits to Israeli citizens. Residents of Dir Nezam are joined by international peace activists each week.

Earlier, Ma'an's correspondent said protesters threw stones and Israeli forces fired stun grenades, tear-gas canisters, rubber-coated bullets. No injuries were reported in the brief confrontations.
