TUBAS (Ma’an) – Israeli forces on Monday morning stormed the Bab al-Awda protest encampment which Palestinian and international activists erected Sunday near the Bisan checkpoint in the northern Jordan Valley.

The mayor of nearby Kardala village Ghassan Fuqaha told Ma’an via telephone that large numbers of Israeli troops stormed the encampment area and tore down the tents which activists have built.

Several activists were detained including Bassam Maslamani, Khalid Qteishat, Riyad Tubasi, Zahir Abu Kishk, Yasser Abu Kishk and Ayman Gharib, the mayor said.
