Palestinian seized in army raid on Bethlehem village

May 27, 2011 2:21 P.M. (Updated: May 27, 2011 2:27 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – Israeli forces detained a young man Friday east of Bethlehem, relatives said. His brother said 10 army vehicles raided Al-Obeidiyeh village at 3:30 a.m. and detained Ahmad Al-Asa, 24.

An army spokeswoman confirmed that one person was arrested in Al-Obeidiyeh. Two other Palestinians were seized in separate raids east of Bethlehem and in Ramallah, she added.

Also Friday, the 118-nation Non-Aligned Movement demanded that Israel release a "substantial number" of Palestinian political prisoners as a "positive step" toward peace.

The movement reiterated its support for the creation of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders, a position it shares with the United States but which is rejected by Israel.
