On Saturday, Israeli soldiers at the Al-Karama Border Cross between the occupied West Bank and Jordan detained and interrogated a young man and informed him he was barred from traveling abroad.

The Palestinian, Ashraf Mohammad Natour, 45, from Jenin in the northern part of the West Bank, was interrogated for more than five hours while heading to Jordan.

He was then informed that he was barred from traveling abroad but was not given a reason for this arbitrary ban.

It is worth mentioning that Ashraf is a former political prisoner who was held by Israeli for ten years.
