Israel detains DFLP leader east of Jerusalem

12:00 Dec 26 2014 Maale Adomim checkpoint

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Friday detained a leader in the leftist Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine at a checkpoint east of Jerusalem.

Nader Jaffal, 42, was taken from a flying checkpoint set up near the Maale Adumim Jewish settlement, which occupies a strategic position on the main road between Jerusalem and Jericho.

At the checkpoint, Israeli forces stopped and searched cars as they passed, and Jaffal's wife Abeer said that when the soldiers asked him to get out of the car, they took him into custody.

According to Abeer, the soldiers told him that there was an order for administrative detention against him, meaning he will be held without charge or trial for a potentially unlimited amount of time.

She said that the soldiers then subjected both her and the car to a search, before taking him to the settlement.

Nader Jaffal previously spent around 15 years in Israeli jails in a number of stints.

He is a father of three children, named Yara, 17, Adham, 15, and Guevara, 4.

More than 5,500 Palestinians are currently being detained by Israel, including hundreds without charge or trial.
