Official: Israel raids village near Tubas, arrests 1

May 1, 2013 2:07 P.M. (Updated: May 2, 2013 3:07 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli tanks raided the al-Aqaba village north of Tubas in the occupied West Bank, causing damage to roads and agricultural lands, an official said.

Sami Sadeq, head of the local village council, said that a number of tanks raided the village without prior notice and detained 23-year-old Jihad Abdul Karim.

He accused the military of ignoring a high court decision banning tanks from entering villages due to the risk of damage.

Al-Aqaba is near a military site in Area C, territory in full control of the Israeli army.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was unaware of any military activity in al-Aqaba but confirmed four other overnight arrests across the West Bank.
