Teen detained in Bil'in home overnight

Nov. 23, 2010 12:00 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 23, 2010 7:38 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A 16-year-old boy was detained from his family home in the central West Bank village of Bil'in overnight, Israeli military officials confirmed.

Officials from the village popular committee said armored military jeeps and personnel carriers entered the area at approximately 2:30 a.m., stormed the home of Adeeb Abu Rahmah, who was detained 17 months earlier, and arrested his son Mohammed, blindfolded him and took him to a waiting jeep.

According to a statement from the village popular committee, witnesses described a group of masked soldiers forcefully entering the house without showing a warrant.

An Israeli military spokesman said the teen was arrested on "suspicion of participation in violent and illegal riots."

The spokesman said allegations made by the popular committee that photographer Haitham Khatib was assaulted by soldiers as he documented the detention were misplaced.

Khatib "disturbed the soldiers during a regular arrest campaign," he said, adding that he was asked to leave. When he refused and continued photographing, the spokesman said, "he was removed from the scene."
