Israeli forces detain teenage Palestinian in Burin amid tensions | Maan News Agency

Israeli forces detain teenage Palestinian in Burin amid tensions | Maan News Agency.

NABLUS (Ma’an) — Israeli forces stormed the northern West Bank village of Burin south of Nablus before dawn on Sunday and detained a Palestinian teenager.

Local sources told Ma’an that clashes broke between local youths and Israeli troops who raided the village and detained 18-year-old Yasar Bashar Qadus.

No injuries were reported.

An Israeli spokeswoman confirmed the arrest, adding that the youth was arrested for “involvement in illegal activity.”

Burin has been a site of tensions recently after Israeli forces fired tear gas canisters into an elementary school after reports that a student had thrown rocks at a vehicle belonging to an Israeli settler on a nearby road.

The village is a frequent site of settler violence and Palestinian clashes with Israeli forces as it is located beside the notoriously violent Israeli settlements of Yitzhar and Bracha.

Settlers frequently attack a number of local villages and prevent farmers from reaching their lands, according to UNOCHA, in addition to attacks on local olive trees themselves.

As a result, local youths sometimes respond by targeting vehicles belonging to settlers on the area’s main roads.

Settler violence against Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank is systematic and ignored by Israeli authorities, who rarely intervene in the violent attacks or prosecute the perpetrators.

In 2013, there were 399 incidents of settler violence against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Suhaib Zahida

HEBRON– An Israeli court on Friday extended the detention of a Palestinian activist who was detained for political activities on Facebook for a week, a Ma’an reporter said on Saturday.

An Israeli court in Petah Tikva extended the detention of Suhaib Zahida, 31, until Sept. 4, after he was arrested on Thursday for creating a page on Facebook called “the Intifada of Hebron” in addition to leading a campaign for the boycott of Israeli products.

Zahida had previously participated in several nonviolent campaigns opposing the Israeli occupation and was an active member of groups working to oppose the recruitment of Palestinian citizens of Israel to the Israeli military.
