Israeli forces detain disabled man near Hebron

June 12, 2014 9:40 P.M. (Updated: June 12, 2014 9:41 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) – Israeli forces on Thursday afternoon detained two Palestinians, including a physically disabled man, in Beit Ummar north of Hebron.

Spokesman for the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements Muhammad Awad said that Israeli forces detained Muhammed Hani Younis Bahr, 38, and an unidentified individual, in the area of Wad al-Arn in northern Beit Ummar.

Muhammad Awad said that "the residents were in their lands with their car parked nearby when suddenly Israeli forces surrounded them."

"The forces searched their car, handcuffed the other man, and took him in their vehicle, while a policeman and a soldier drove their car to near Etzion military camp."

He added that Bahr was driven in the car, as he is unable to walk.

An Israeli military spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
