Hebron on Lockdown

Israeli soldiers closed the entrances and raided houses on Tariq Bin Ziyad and Jawhar streets, a Ma’an reporter said.

Soldiers forced males out of some homes at gunpoint and assembled them at a junction on Tariq Bin Ziyad street.

Near the junction, Israeli soldiers were also holding up an ambulance that was taking a woman in labor to hospital, a medic said.

The medic said that the woman was about to give birth but the soldiers refused to let the ambulance through the street.
