Israeli soldiers abducted, on Friday evening, a young Palestinian man, after stopping him at one of the military roadblocks, surrounding the Ibrahimi Mosque, in Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said the soldiers stopped the young man, from Yatta town near Hebron, after he panicked when they shouted at him to stop while he was casually walking near them.

The soldiers then searched the young man and abducted him, after alleging that he carried “a small plastic blade,” in one of his pockets.

The soldiers cuffed and blindfolded the young man, whose name remained unknown, and took him to a police station near the mosque, for interrogation.
