JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Wednesday detained a leader of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine at a flying checkpoint near Jericho, the movement said.
Nader Jafal, 40, was returning home to Abu Dis from Jericho when Israeli forces stopped his car at a flying checkpoint, the DFLP said in a statement.
They confiscated his cell phone and took him to the Russian Compound in Jerusalem.
Jafal, a political science student at Al-Quds University, was released from Israeli jail in 2009 after serving nine years of a 15-year sentence.
