Israeli forces detain former prisoner at Nablus-area checkpoint

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a former Palestinian prisoner late Thursday night at the Huwwara military checkpoint south of Nablus city in the northern occupied West Bank.

Locals told Ma’an that that Israeli forces detained Nidal Nader Suleiman, 36, a resident of the Nablus-area Kafr Qalil village, after stopping the vehicle he was riding in and searching the ID cards of passengers.

Khalid Suleiman, Nidal’s brother, said that when he confirmed Israeli forces’ intention to detain him, Nidal declared that he would start a hunger strike alongside some 1,600 prisoners on their 19th day of mass hunger strike.

Suleiman is an activist in the Fatah movement in Nablus, and was on his way back to Nablus from a solidarity march in Ramallah when he was detained.

An Israeli border police spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
