On Saturday evening, Israeli soldiers detained four young Palestinian men for several hours before abducting one of them at a military roadblock south of Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Kamal Bani Odah, the head of the Jenin office of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS), said the soldiers installed a sudden military roadblock near Arraba town junction before stopping and searching many cars.

He added that the soldiers stopped a car transporting four young men, and detained them for several hours, before abducting one of them, a former political prisoner identified as Ali Khaled Zahran, and confiscated their car.
