HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli police on Monday detained a Palestinian farmer in the southern West Bank and confiscated his agricultural tractor, a local popular committee spokesman said.
Muhammad Ayyad Awad said that an Israeli police patrol in Beit Ummar stopped 28-year-old farmer Udayy Fahmi al-Alami while he was driving his tractor back to his field in the area.
A police officer drove the tractor to Etzion detention center and al-Alami was arrested, Awad said.
An Israeli police spokesman did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
