5 seized in Silwan, including 12-year-old child

June 29, 2010 8:21 P.M. (Updated: June 30, 2010 2:43 P.M.)
Bethlehem/Jerusalem – Ma’an – Israeli forces seized five Palestinians, including a 12-year-old child, from Silwan in East Jerusalem at dawn on Tuesday.

Ma’an’s Jerusalem correspondent said the detentions relate to the clashes that erupted in Silwan on Saturday.

The detainees were identified as Ahmad and Nasser Abu Nab, Ahmad Awad, Ahmad Abu Thiab, and 12-year-old Baha Ar-Rajabi.

Israeli police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said he was not immediately familiar with the arrests, but would look into the report.

The violent clashes in the flash point neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem began on Saturday night and continued until dawn on Monday.

Palestinian medical sources reported treating at least 52 Palestinians on the scene. Nineteen-year-old Ala Abu Nab, who was five-months pregnant, was taken to the Red Cross hospital where medics aborted her baby. Ala’s husband said she went into shock when Israeli forces attempted to enter their home, firing tear gas grenades and sound bombs.

Raja Sameren had to undergo an induced miscarriage after inhaling tear gas fired by Israeli forces toward houses in Silwan. The 32-year-old mother was three-months pregnant.

Muhammad Mahmud Al-Qawasmi lost his eye when he was hit in the face by a sound grenade.
