NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces late Tuesday arrested a Palestinian student north of Ramallah, security sources said.
Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers arrested 20-year-old Eyhab Khaled Atiyani, claiming he carried a knife as he approached an Israeli military base near the illegal settlement of Beit El.
An Israeli army spokeswoman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
Atiyani is a student of medicine at al-Quds university in Abu Dis.
