RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces beat and arrested three Palestinians on Tuesday evening at Jabaa checkpoint east of Jerusalem.
Clashes then broke out as Palestinians tried to free them and Israeli soldiers fired tear gas.
Israeli forces then blocked the road causing a large traffic jam as hundreds of cars remained blocked.
A witness said he had been stuck in his car for three hours.
