Israeli soldiers took Mish’al Abu Baker, from the West Bank city of Jenin, late on Friday evening, before he could see his newly born son.

Abu Baker, who works selling barbecue coals, was coming back from Rammallah city to his new born son, when troops stopped him at a temporary military checkpoint near Jenin and took him to an unknown location, his father reported from the scene.

Abu Baker was in an Israeli detention center for four years and was released during a prisoner exchange between Hezbollah and Israel in March 2005, his father added.
