HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Monday detained a Palestinian and beat several others during a raid on the village of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron, a Ma'an correspondent reported.

Mahmoud Salibi, 21, was detained by Israeli forces in the raid.

A spokesman from the villages' popular committee said soldiers raided the home of Ahmad Abu Hashim and beat some of his family members, leading to the hospitalization of his son Yusuf, 19.

Soldiers issued Abu Hashim and two of his sons with arrest warrants, the spokesman added.

Israeli forces also raided the home of Ibrahim Abu Mariya, 50, and issued him and his sons Firas, 20, and Mutasim, 18, with arrest warrants.

A witness said that a tear gas canister fired by soldiers had caused a fire in the home of Abu Hashim.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was unaware of the incident.
