Soldiers 'confiscate shirt' from Palestinian

Nov. 28, 2010 7:00 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 28, 2010 7:00 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A 26-year-old Palestinian from Nablus said Israeli soldiers ordered him to remove his shirt and then confiscated it on Sunday.

Nader Rezeq Dweikat said he was walking near his home in Beta village to get fuel for his tractor when three soldiers in a military jeep stopped him.

"Initially I thought they wanted to check my identity card, but they said 'We do not want your ID card, just take off your shirt.' I thought I misunderstood, but they repeated their order, 'Take off your shirt,' and I did so under force, they seized my shirt and immediately left the area, they didn't ask me about anything else," he said.

An Israeli military spokesman was not familiar with the incident, but said Dweikat was welcome to file a complaint.
