'Undercover Israeli force' detains Beit Ummar man

Feb. 14, 2013 9:51 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 18, 2013 4:53 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) -- An Israeli undercover force detained a Palestinian man in the southern West Bank town Beit Ummar early Thursday, locals said.

Raed Rasem Aziz Ikhlayel, 25, was staying at a friend's house in the Al-Turbeiqa neighborhood when the 15 undercover troops broke down the door around 6 a.m., popular committee spokesman Muhammad Awad said.

The owner of the house, Muhammad Abu Ayyas, 50, tried to talk to the force, but they hit him and threw him to the ground, Awad said.

He added that Ikhlayel was taken away in an white, unmarked vehicle, and that the forces spoke fluent Arabic.

An Israeli army spokesman did not return calls seeking comment.
