Nineteen Israeli youth were detained by security forces on Friday after trying to enter the West Bank city of Jericho.

IDF and Judea and Samaria police stopped the youth at a checkpoint on a highway leading into the Palestinian city, preventing them from entering and detaining them for attempted entry into territory classified as Area A - or territory under civilian and security control of the Palestinian Authority.

The group were said to have been set on visiting to synagogues in the ancient city.
