HEBRON (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained two young Palestinian men at a checkpoint at the main entrance to Beit Ummar near Hebron in the southern West Bank on Friday, a local activist said.

Muhammad Awad identified the detainees as 23-year-olds Ahmad Muhammad al-Alami and Mahmoud Abdul Hamid al-Alami.

Separately, settlers attacked a vegetable peddler and his son while they were driving their truck back from Nahhalin village to Beit Ummar, according to Awad, who is on the local popular committee.

Settlers obstructed Salem Sabarnah, 40, and his son Samir, 9, and smashed the windshield of their truck, he said. He added that the settlers then attacked the man and his son causing bruises before Israeli forces arrived.

A Palestinian ambulance also arrived and took Sabarnah and his son to the public hospital in Hebron, Awad added highlighting that Israeli soldiers “did nothing at all to the attackers.”
