NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained an activist with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine on the Ramallah-Nablus road on Wednesday.
A security source told Ma'an that Israeli forces detained Hussam al-Razza, 55, at a checkpoint near the Israeli settlement of Beit El.
Al-Razza was reportedly taken to Huwarra military base and was sentenced to six months of administrative detention, the source added.
Israeli forces had reportedly raided al-Razza's house in Nablus on Tuesday and damaged his property.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was not familiar with the incident.
The detention comes less than a week after Israeli forces killed a PFLP activist after surrounding his house in Birzeit. Muatazz Washaha, 24, died after Israeli forces fired a shell and opened fire inside his home during an arrest raid.
After the killing, the PFLP vowed that it would revenge the young activist's death.
