Israeli soldiers abducted, on Tuesday evening, a Palestinian man at Beit Hanoun (Erez) terminal, while leaving the Gaza Strip.

Media sources said the Palestinian, Ahmad Emad Odah, was granted a permit from the Israeli side to leave Gaza and head to the West Bank on his way to Jordan, however, once he headed to Erez, he was abducted and moved to an unknown destination.

Palestinian researcher and former political prisoner, specialized on detainee affairs, Abdul-Nasser Ferwana, said the soldiers abducted thirteen Palestinians at Erez Terminal since the beginning of this year.

He added that the soldiers frequently detain and interrogate the Palestinians at Erez for many hours and try to coerce them into becoming informants in return for being allowed to cross, especially when they are patients trying to leave Gaza for medical treatment.
