QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a diplomatic and media delegation in Qalqiliya on Monday, the Information Ministry reported.

The ministry organized a tour of the city, which is surrounded on all sides by the separation wall, to show the delegation of foreign diplomats the effect of the wall on residents’ lives.

During the tour, the group was detained inside a gate in the wall, the ministry said.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was not familiar with such an incident.
