BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian journalist on Monday after assaulting him and his brother in the central occupied West Bank city of Ramallah, according to Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency.

Wafa reported that Israeli forces raided the home of Ahmad Arabeed, 28, a journalist who works for al-Hurriyah radio in Ramallah.

Israeli forces reportedly assaulted Arabeed and one of his brothers during the raid. Wafa added that soldiers held the family in one room and seized their cellular phones during the raid.

Arabeed was taken to an unknown location.

Israeli raids into Palestinian towns and villages are near daily occurrence in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

According to UN documentation, between January 2 and 15th, Israeli forces carried out 176 search and arrest operations in the West Bank, compared to a bi weekly average of 79 search and detention raids in 2017.
