HEBRON (Ma’an) – Israeli troops detained five young Palestinian men and a 10-year-old child in Hebron in the southern West Bank Saturday night and Sunday morning, locals told Ma’an.

Faris Abu Sneina, a 10-year-old child from the Old City of Hebron, was assaulted by Israeli settlers before Israeli soldiers took him into custody. Palestinian security sources said officers from the Hebron military liaison department were contacting their Israeli counterparts to try and free the child.

Separately, Israeli forces detained 24-year-old Muhammad Arif al-Sharabati, a journalist who works for a local radio station, after ransacking his home.

Israeli troops also stormed the Jabal Juhar neighborhood in Hebron and detained 22-year-old Adham Muhammad Ribhi al-Ajlouni and Muatasim Muhammad al-Zughayar.

Another Israeli raid was reported in the town of Dura near Hebron where 23-year-old Muhammad Rizq Ibriyush was detained from his home.

Furthermore, sources in the village of al-Shuyukh north of Hebron told Ma’an that Fadi Muhammad Ismail al-Halayqa, 23, was detained Saturday while he joined a rally in Tulkarem in the northern West Bank in support of Palestinian prisoners.
