JENIN (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces reportedly detained a 67-year-old Palestinian man on Friday night from the village of Yaabad in the northern West Bank Jenin district, over possession of a plastic airsoft gun belonging to his grandchild.

Official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency reported that Mahmoud Hamdan, 67, was detained by Israeli army forces during a raid into his home Friday night.
