RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers on Friday took over a
monastery in a village near Ramallah and raised an Israeli flag over the building.

Priest Aziz Raei told Ma'an that Israeli settlers used force to occupy the
monastery and its adjacent chapel in al-Taybeh, a Christian village in the
central West Bank.

They raised a flag over the monastery, which was built by a French monk.
