Relative: 11-year-old detained in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Israeli forces detained Friday an 11-year-old boy from a village northwest of Jerusalem, a relative said.

Muhammad Hushiyeh was walking in the Qatanna village when youths threw stones at Israeli soldiers, his cousin Lubna told Ma'an.

She said soldiers arrested the stone-throwers and swept up Muhammad as well. He was not involved beforehand, she insisted.

The boy is already in a difficult situation; his father was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers a year earlier, Lubna pointed out.
