Soldiers at Qalandia checkpoint

Israeli soldiers abducted, late on Tuesday evening, two young Palestinian men in two separate incidents at military roadblocks near Jenin and Jerusalem, in the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said the soldiers installed a military roadblock near Ya’bad town, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, and abducted Ibrahim Ahmad Zeid, from Barta’a nearby town, in addition to confiscating his car.

Furthermore, the soldiers stationed at the Qalandia terminal, between Jerusalem and Ramallah, abducted a young man from the Gaza Strip, reportedly after searching him and locating a hidden knife.

The army did not release the man’s name, or whether he carried a permit to enter Jerusalem, but only said he is from the Gaza Strip.
