A local source in Tulkarem reported that soldiers stopped a bus near Jeet village, and arrested Mohammad Fayeq Qambar, 25, the bus driver, after he tried to stop the soldiers who were verbally abusing a woman.

The source stated that soldiers fist-fought with the driver and severely punched and clubbed him before arresting him.

After the driver was arrested, another driver drove the bus which was heading to Ramallah.
