JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces stormed the neighborhood of Silwan in occupied East Jerusalem on Monday morning and detained 65-year-old Said Ayyash, whose son Milad Ayyash was shot dead by Israeli forces in 2011. 

Ayyash’s family members told Ma'an that Israeli intelligence officers had stormed their house one day prior, at dawn on Sunday, to detain Ayyash. 

Ayyash, however, was in the hospital at the time. Israeli forces then returned Monday at dawn and detained him. According to the family, forces gave no explanation for Ayyash’s detention. 

A spokesperson for Israel’s security agency was not immediately available for comment on the detention. 

Milad Ayyash, 16, was shot and killed by Israeli forces on May 15, 2011, during clashes in the Ras Al-Amud neighborhood of East Jerusalem, adjacent to Silwan.
