Israeli forces arrest journalist from Budrus village

Aug. 13, 2013 9:59 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 14, 2013 8:42 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces arrested a Palestinian journalist in the village of Budrus early Tuesday, family members said.

Soldiers detained Mohammad Awad after raiding his home and breaking down the door, his brother said.

He was taken to an unknown location.

An Israeli military spokesperson could not be reached for comment.

Awad is a journalist at Ramsat media agency in Ramallah. He has been detained several times by Palestinian Authority security forces over the past year and spent months in jail.

In May, he went on hunger strike to protest his detention by PA authorities.
