Group: 26 from Bethlehem arrested in May

RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- Israel arrested 26 residents of Bethlehem last month, the Palestinian Prisoners Society said Wednesday.

Abed Khalil, the head of the rights group, said arrests increased in May among minors.

The army destroyed property and used jeeps during the raids that arrested many schoolchildren, he said.
