BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Israeli forces early Monday evening detained a veteran Palestinian Jerusalemite journalist at a Ramallah-area military checkpoint in the central occupied West Bank, his son told Ma’an, though reports from Palestinian news agencies later Monday evening reported that journalist Muhammad Rabbo was released from Israeli custody.

Wisam Abed Rabbo said Israeli forces stationed at the Beit El checkpoint– also referred to as DCO — in eastern Ramallah stopped his father Muhammad Rabbo, examined his identity card, and then took him into custody and seized his private car.
Wisam added that his family tried to get answers and an explanation as to why his father Muhammad, a resident of the central occupied West Bank village of Beit Hanina, was arrested but to no avail.
An Israeli border police spokesperson was not immediately available for comment on the report.
