Man evades Israeli gunfire at Nablus checkpoint

Oct. 29, 2008 7:44 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 29, 2008 7:44 P.M.)
Nablus - Ma'an - Israeli forces detained a young man on Wednesday evening at the Al-Hamra checkpoint near Nablus, witnesses told Ma'an.

Several people at the scene also reported that Israeli soldiers fired shots at the young man before seizing him, Ma'an's correspondent in Nablus reported.

According to eyewitnesses, Israeli soldiers set up roadblocks near the Al-Hamra checkpoint, making hundreds of people wait in the heavy rain.

One of the soaked Palestinians apparently jumped from the line in an attempt to run around one of the barriers as soldiers opened fire, missing him. They did detain him following the gunfire, however, and he was taken to an undisclosed location.
