BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a young Palestinian man in the southern West Bank town of Beit Ummar on Friday as he was returning home from Friday prayers, a local activist group said.

Spokesman for the Popular Committee Against the Wall in Beit Ummar Muhammad Ayad Awad said that Israeli forces detained Bilal Habis Mouhammad al-Alami, 19, in front of his home in the neighborhood of Wadi Sheikh near the main Hebron-Jerusalem road.

Awad added that al-Alami was walking home from Friday prayers when he was stopped, handcuffed, blindfolded and put in a military jeep which took him to the Gush Etzion center in the nearby settlement of the same name.

An Israeli military spokesperson did not have any information regarding the incident.
