Israeli occupation forces detained the 15-year-old boy, Majd Bayda, after beating him while he was near the southern wall built on the citizens’ lands.

Israeli occupation forces detained on Sunday evening a Palestinian child during confrontations in Jayyus town, northeast of Qalqilya.

Local sources said that Israeli occupation forces detained the 15-year-old boy, Majd Bayda, after beating him while he was near the southern wall built on the citizens’ lands.

Israeli occupation forces abused and stripped him of some of his clothes near the wall surrounding Jayyus, the sources added.

Israeli occupation forces soldiers fired rubber-coated metal bullets and stun grenades during the clashes that erupted around the wall in the town.

Jayyus is one of the villages most affected by the Israeli separation wall as the occupation confiscated most of its agricultural lands.

Meanwhile, Israeli occupation forces detained the released detainee and student at Al-Najah University, Zuhdi Deeb Qawareq, 27, while he was passing through the Huwara military checkpoint.

An eyewitness reported that Israeli occupation forces detained Qawareq while on his way to Nablus.

Qawareq is from Awarta village, south of Nablus, and he has spent 15 months in the Israeli jails, during which he went on a hunger strike.
