On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers abducted a Palestinian medic at the Za’tara military roadblock south of Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS) said the soldiers stopped one of its ambulances while returning to its headquarters in Nablus after helping a Palestinian patient.

The PRCS added that the soldiers detained the medics at the roadblock for several hours before abducting one of them, identified as Fawwaz Bitar.

In related news, the army installed an additional electronic gate remotely controlled by the soldiers near the Huwwara military roadblock south of Nablus, an issue that is placing more restrictions on the Palestinians.
