Israeli forces detain Palestine TV team

Oct. 11, 2013 4:07 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 12, 2013 2:14 P.M.)
QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces Friday prevented a Palestinian news team from entering the northern West Bank village of Kafr Qaddum to cover the weekly protest, a Palestine TV director said.

Ezzat Oba, director of the Palestine TV office, said that Israeli soldiers detained the TV team and confiscated the keys to their car.

Similar incidents have occurred in the past, Oba added. He said that Israeli forces target Palestine TV teams and impede their ability to do their jobs.

A spokeswoman for the Israeli army did not immediately return calls.

Protests are held every Friday in Kafr Qaddum against Israel's closure of a main road linking the village to its nearest city, Nablus.

Israel has confiscated land owned by villagers for the illegal Jewish settlement Qedumin.
