Israeli forces detained Al Arabiya crew members during a press assignment in the Jordan Valley.

The Israeli forces detained Al Arabiya and Al Hadath’s crew for several hours as they said the journalists were shooting footage in a prohibited place.

The Al Arabiya and Al Hadath crew were covering the latest protests by farmers in the Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank.
