Jordan Valley Solidarity 2 July -- Today, JVS volunteers witnessed the arrest of two young men by the occupation army at Hamra checkpoint. At 2.15 pm two Palestinians, on their early twenties, from Nablus were kept handcuffed in their undershirts on the floor, at Hamra checkpoint, for several hours. They were then sent to an interrogation center. At 8 pm they were still under arrest. Hamra checkpoint is one of the five checkpoints that close the Jordan Valley from the rest of the West Bank. It is located on the way to Tubas, at the entrance of Frush Beddajan village, in the central Jordan Valley. It is known as one of the worse checkpoints in the West Bank. Last January two young Palestinians were killed as they were crossing this checkpoint.
