Israeli forces 'detain 12' in Qalqiliya village

Jan. 17, 2012 4:05 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 18, 2012 12:00 P.M.)
QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained 12 people in Qalqiliya village Azzun on Monday, a detainees group said.

Qalqiliya detainees society said in a statement that four people were later released, and told the group they were badly beaten by the soldiers.

Among the group detained were children and recently-released prisoners, the society said, condemning the detentions as "unacceptable and against human rights."

An Israeli army spokesman said forces detained nine people in Azzun.

"We have them in for questioning together with the Shabak (Israel's internal security service)," he added.

In late December, forces closed all entrances to the northern West Bank village and ransacked a number of homes.

The village is encircled by Israeli settlements and the planned route of Israel's separation wall.
