Israeli forces detain Palestinian doctor in center of Hebron

March 24, 2019 1:24 P.M. (Updated: March 25, 2019 10:21 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian medical doctor, on Sunday, in the neighborhood of Tel Rumeida, in Hebron’s Old City, in the southern occupied West Bank.

Local sources confirmed that Israeli forces held Palestinian medical doctor, Suzan al-Sulaima, for over an hour near an Israeli military checkpoint in Hebron’s Old City and detained her afterwards.

Sources added that al-Sulaima was taken to an unknown location.

The reason for her detention remained unknown.

Tel Rumeida is located within the area of the city designated as H2, an area taking over the bulk of Hebron's Old City that is under full Israeli military control, and the site of five illegal Israeli settlements which continually expand into surrounding Palestinian neighborhoods.

Palestinian residents of the Old City face a large Israeli military presence on a daily basis, with at least 20 checkpoints set up at the entrances of many streets, as well as the entrance of the Ibrahimi Mosque itself.

Meanwhile, Israeli settlers move freely on the street, drive cars, and carry machine guns.
