Israeli forces detain Palestinian woman near Ramallah

July 17, 2016 11:23 A.M. (Updated: July 18, 2016 6:31 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a young Palestinian woman on Saturday evening after stopping the vehicle she was traveling in at a flying checkpoint west of Ramallah in the central occupied West Bank.

Witnesses said Israeli forces stopped a Palestinian taxi at the entrance of Beit Liqya west of Ramallah, and detained Banan Mahmoud Ahmad Mafarja, 21, and took her to an unknown destination.

Witnesses added that Israeli forces informed her brother that they detained her upon an order from the Israeli intelligence service.

Mafarja is a medical student at Al-Quds University in the Abu Dis neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into reports.
