JENIN, December 22, 2017 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Friday detained a 67-year-old Palestinian man from the village of Ya’bad, in Jenin district, for owning an air gun and another gun made of plastic belonging to his grandchild.
The Detainees Affairs Commission said Mahmoud Hamdan, 67, was detained by Israeli army after a military raid into his home.
Israeli forces wreaked havoc into Hamdan’s home, destroying its contents and furniture, before detaining him and his son Hadi, 30. They confiscated an air gun used for bird hunting and a plastic gun that belongs to Hamdan’s grandchild.
The commission said the number of detention cases has reached over 550 cases in the aftermath of US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
