Three people were also arrested in Beit Ummar, Hebron, a local committee spokesman said.

Rabee Abu Ayyash, 12, Yazan Ikhlayel, 15, and Ibrahim Mohammad Abdul-Hamid Ibraghtith, 40, were arrested in overnight raids, Mohammad Awad, the spokesman of Beit Ummar's popular committee against the wall, said.
