Israeli forces arrest AP photographer in Hebron

Aug. 15, 2014 8:32 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 23, 2014 3:55 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Friday afternoon arrested Associated Press photographer Iyad Hamad during clashes in Hebron.

Hamad was beaten, cuffed and led to an unknown destination, locals said.

Clashes had started in Hebron after a march in protest of the Israeli assault on Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian Journalists Syndicate criticized the arrest and accused the Israeli army of targeting journalists on duty, especially photographers.

An army spokeswoman said Hamad was released shortly after being detained.

She said a group of journalists was standing between Israeli forces who were responding to Palestinians hurling stones. She said that when they refused to move, forces arrested Hamad.

The rest of the journalists moved after he was detained so no other arrests were made, she added.
