Israeli forces arrest Hebron journalist

Ma’an – 14/11/2011

HEBRON — Israeli forces detained a Palestinian journalist on Sunday night after raiding his home in the Wadi Hariyya neighborhood of Hebron in the southern West Bank, a Ma’an correspondent said.

Raed al-Sharif, 23, had been briefly detained and interrogated by Israeli intelligence in October 2010.

Director of the Palestinian prisoner’s society in Hebron Amjad Najjar denounced the detention, describing it as part of Israel’s policy of “intimidation against Palestinian journalists to prevent them from reporting the truth about the torture and oppression of Israeli occupation practices against the Palestinian people.”

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that al-Sharif was arrested for “suspected involvement in terrorist activity.”
