Israeli troops detain 2 Palestinians near Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces stopped two Palestinians, including one teenage boy, at military checkpoints before taking them into custody near Nablus in the northern West Bank Sunday morning.

Palestinian security sources told Ma'an that 30-year-old Khamis Ishtewi Mubarak from Tubas had been detained at Huwwara checkpoint south of Nablus.

Separately, 15-year-old Diyaa Ismail Dweikat was detained at a flying checkpoint that Israeli forces had set up near the main entrance to the village of Beita.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the arrests.

Israeli forces routinely detain Palestinians throughout the West Bank, often on the pretext of perceived security threat, and Addameer estimates that 40 percent of the Palestinian male population has been arrested at some point.

More than 6,000 Palestinian prisoners are currently being held in Israeli jails.
