Israeli forces 'arrest 65-year-old man' near Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday detained a 65-year-old man near Yatta in the southern West Bank, a local committee said.

Soldiers detained Eid al-Hathaleen and prevented farmers and shepherds from reaching their land in Umm al-Khair, near the illegal Karmel settlement, Yatta popular committee spokesman Ratib Jabour said.

Soldiers threatened to arrest and fine the farmers if they entered the 12-acre area, which settlers seized and surrounded with barbed wire last week, Jabour added.

Jabour noted that the only well in Umm al-Khair is located in the closed area. He urged international and human rights organizations to intervene.

An Israeli military spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
