JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday detained a Palestinian man at a flying checkpoint near Arraba southwest of Jenin.

Local sources told Ma'an that Abd al-Rahman al-Bajawi from Yabad was detained by Israeli forces as he passed through a checkpoint that Israeli forces had temporarily erected on a road in the northern West Bank.

Witnesses said he was taken to an unknown destination.

An Israeli army spokeswoman did not return calls seeking comment.

Israeli forces maintain severe restrictions on Palestinians' freedom of movement in the West Bank through a complex combination of fixed checkpoints, flying checkpoints, roads forbidden to Palestinians but open to Jewish settlers, and various other physical obstructions.

At any given time there are about 100 permanent Israeli checkpoints in the West Bank, while surprise flying checkpoints often number into the hundreds.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
