HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained two Palestinian journalists on Wednesday before noon in settlement in the Beit Ummar village in the southern Hebron district as they covered its expansion, the Palestine Solidarity Project said.

PSP spokesman Mohammad Ayyad Awad said Ma'mun Wazwaz, a Reuters photojournalist, and Hazem Bader, an Agence France-Presse photojournalist were detained whilst inside the Karmi Tsur settlement, which began expansion works a day earlier.

An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed the detentions, saying they had not entered the settlement through its main gates. The two were transferred to the Israeli police for entering "in a suspicious way," she said.
