A lawyer said Saturday an American university professor was detained by “Israeli” police for trying to disrupt security forces in the West Bank community of Khan al-Ahmar.

Gaby Lasky said that her client, Frank Romano, is being held in a jail in occupied Al-Quds. Lasky says police told her Romano would appear Monday before an “Israeli” military court.

Romano was among dozens of activists spending time in Khan al-Ahmar to try to block the possible demolition of the Palestinian village.

Activists say that on Friday, Romano stood in front of a bulldozer clearing barriers that had been set up to slow demolition.

“Israeli” police said three people were detained at the scene.

Romano's LinkedIn page says he teaches law at the Université Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense in France.
