Israeli forces 'detain Palestinian singer'

21:00 Nov 3 2012 Sinjil, Bethlehem, Beit Fajjar, and Saeer

JENIN (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained a popular Palestinian singer returning from a concert in Ramallah on Saturday night, along with three members of his band, locals said.

Basil Jabareen, from Taybeh near Jenin, and his band were seized at an impromptu checkpoint erected near Sinjil, between Nablus and Ramallah, they said.

An Israeli army spokeswoman had no record of the detention. She said three Palestinians had been detained in Bethlehem, Beit Fajjar and Saeer overnight.

Locals said Jabareen had previously been interrogated by Israeli intelligence officers during Ramadan this year, but released after three hours.
