Israeli soldiers harass Palestinians at flying checkpoint south of Qabatiya

Aug. 29, 2008 3:12 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 29, 2008 3:12 P.M.)
Jenin - Ma'an - Israeli forces set up a checkpoint at the southern entrance of Qabatiya south Jenin on Friday morning.

Local sources reported to Ma'an's Jenin correspondent that a flying checkpoint was established in the area and that the Israeli soldiers manning the post were provoking residents. He said that some were asked to remove their clothes for strip searches, and others were asked to pull down their trousers in front of women. Other cars were pulled over and women were asked to step out, at which point their belongings were searched.

Eyewitnesses added that searches were being conducted unnecessarily slowly, causing a pile-up of cars waiting to pass the blockade.
