Israeli forces detain teenage boy from Nablus-area village

Aug. 16, 2014 11:11 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 16, 2014 12:55 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian teenager after multiple predawn raids on private homes in the northern West Bank village of Salem east of Nablus.

According to Palestinian security sources, several Israeli military vehicles stormed the village after midnight and launched a house-to-house inspection campaign before they handcuffed 17-year-old Ayman Jihad Hamdan and took him in a military jeep to unknown destination.

The sources said that Hamdan was a supporter of the Fatah movement, one of the main political parties in the West Bank.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said that during a "routine check in the area" a man was found with a "handgun on him" and was detained and sent to a police station.

At least 6,500 Palestinians are currently being held in Israeli prison, including around 449 without charge or trial.
