BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces detained a Palestinian child on his way home from school on Wednesday in the village of al-Khas in the occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem.

Israeli soldiers stopped and detained Issa Hmeidan at a checkpoint east of Bethlehem when he was returning home from school. Hmeidan’s age and the reasons for the detention remained unknown as of Wednesday.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma’an she would look into reports on the detention.

In February, Israeli forces violently detained a 14-year-old Palestinian in broad daylight as the boy was heading home from school in the Bethlehem-area refugee camp of Aida.
