The Israeli occupation army on Thursday evening closed the road barrier known locally as Sadat al-Fahs, south of al-Khalil city, kidnapped a Palestinian businessman and confiscated a large sum of money from him.
A local source told the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) that the Israeli army’s closure of the road prevented Palestinian citizens and vehicles from entering or leaving Sadat al-Fahs area, where nearly 500 factories and workshops for the production of construction materials are located.
The source also said that Israeli soldiers set up a makeshift checkpoint on road 60 near Sadat al-Fahs barrier, intercepted citizens and vehicles and embarked on searching them.
He added that the soldiers forced a Palestinian businessman identified as Saadi Abd-Rabo to leave his car, seized 34,000 dollars from inside it and arrested him, with no known reason.
