Israeli forces detain 2 in Hebron arrest raid

Jan. 4, 2013 10:51 A.M. (Updated: Jan. 5, 2013 6:17 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces arrested two people in Hebron early Friday, locals and Israel's army said.

Israeli forces raided the al-Rajabi family home and detained two brothers, Muhammad Abed al-Fatah, 23, and Muhanad Abed al-Fatah, 21, a relative said.

They assaulted a third brother, Orabi, and caused extensive damage to the house, including the door and several items of furniture.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that two people were detained in Hebron for "illegal behavior."

Israeli military forces routinely carry out overnight arrest raids throughout the West Bank, usually detaining suspects on the pretext of security.
