Israeli forces detain 2 Palestinian teenagers in Hebron-area village

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained two Palestinian teenagers from the village of Beit Ummar in the Hebron district of the southern occupied West Bank on Friday night.

Local activist Muhammad Ayyad Awwad told Ma’an that Bahaa Raed Muqbel Muqbel, 16, and Uday Iyad Bassem Zaaqiq, 15, were detained in the village.

The two teenagers were subsequently transferred to an Israeli army post near Israel’s illegal Karmei Tzur settlement, built on lands belonging to the villages of Halhul and Beit Ummar, Awwad said. The teenagers were most likely transferred to the location in order to undergo interrogations.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an they would look into reports of the detentions.

According to Addameer, 6,128 Palestinians were imprisoned by Israel as of July, 450 of whom were being held without charge or trial. During the month of July, 144 Palestinian minors were detained by Israeli forces.

Rights group have often cited Israel’s routine imprisonment of Palestinians as a tool to erode Palestinian life in the occupied Palestinian territory. Addameer has estimated that 40 percent of the male Palestinian population has been detained by Israel at least one point in their lives.
