Israel arrests 90-year-old Palestinian

Israeli occupation forces arrested 90-year-old Palestinian Ali Al-Wahsh yesterday morning, local sources in Bethlehem reported. Large number of Israeli occupation forces raided Al-Khader neighbourhood in the West Bank city of Bethlehem, broke into houses, searched them and damaged their furniture before arresting Al-Wahsh. Zakaria, one of Al-Wahsh’s sons, described the Israeli occupation’s raid, which lasted four hours, as “violent and barbaric”.
 
“We have never thought that the Israeli occupation wanted to arrest the old man, who is the chief of Al-Ta’amra clan which existed in the West Bank and Jordan and one of the reknown tribal judges in Bethlehem.” Al-Wahsh has been arrested on numerous occasions by occupation forces, most recently in 1992.
