Hebron – Ma’an – A woman who refused to remove her clothes in front of Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint in Hebron was detained and taken to an Israeli prison facility Tuesday afternoon, local sources said.

Umm Wisam Dovch approached the Martyrs street checkpoint in central Hebron, and was asked to remove layers of her clothing so soldiers could search her person after she passed through metal detectors at the military post. When the middle-age woman refused to remove her clothing she was struck several times by one of the soldiers and forced into a military vehicle.

The woman was at the checkpoint on her way home to Tel Ar-Rumeda, south west of the Old City. The street is closed to Palestinian vehicles and residents must pass two Israeli checkpoints and several trailers settler families whenever they leave or return to their homes.

Israeli media sources reported that the woman was suspected to be concealing a weapon in the shoulder of her coat.
