On Monday night, Israeli soldiers prevented a Palestinian from entering his town, Barta’a, northwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, forcing him to spend the night in his car after being unable to reach his home.

Haitham Kabaha said that he owned a private taxi and added that the soldiers prevented him from returning to his town after stopping him at the permanent military roadblock at the town entrance.

Kabaha said the soldiers searched his taxi and prevented him from entering the town “because he was carrying several containers of water.”

He added that the soldiers claimed he was arguing with them, which was the reason for not allowing him through, although no such thing occurred, and their focus was on the water he was carrying.

It is worth mentioning that Barta’a has been surrounded and isolated by the illegal Annexation Wall since 2003, and the Palestinians can only enter or leave it from the permanent military roadblock.

The roadblock witnessed numerous Israeli violations, including the abduction of many workers, students, and merchants, and the army frequently open fire at the Palestinians and their cars to force them to leave.
