NABLUS, (PIC)– Security militias loyal to de facto Palestinian president and Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas kidnapped Palestinian physics professor Esam Al-Ashqar on Tuesday evening.

Former minister of prisoners Wasfi Qabaha told the PIC that the so-called preventive security militia detained Ashqar, 52, at a roadblock.

Ashqar was detained after several summonses by those militias in Nablus, special sources told the PIC.

Two of his sons, Mujahid and Anas, are held by those militias while a third, Huthaifa, is held by the Israeli occupation authority.

Ashqar was imprisoned in Israeli jails for seven years including two years without trial or charge under administrative detention.
