Israeli army arrests Palestinian boy

Israeli army forces arrested a 12-year-old Palestinian boy for participating in violent riots.

Muhammad Hawaja was taken Wednesday from his parent’s West Bank home in the village of Naalin, which has been the scene of Palestinian riots over construction of the security fence.

Also Wednesday, two Israeli soldiers were lightly injured in clashes with Jewish settlers while trying to confiscate construction equipment at the Yad Yair outpost near Talmon.

One soldier was injured when a demonstrator set his dog on him; the other broke his finger during the melee.
