The kidnapped man was identified as Ziyad Saliba Bannoura in his 40s; he owns a blacksmith workshop.

Eyewitnesses told IMEMC that Israeli soldiers stormed Eskan el Room (The Greek Orthodox Housing Project) in Beit Sahour, searched the home of Bannoura and his son-in-law before taking him away.

The soldiers forced the two families, including children, out of their homes at gun point, and searched the homes, the witnesses added.

During the search, the soldiers caused excessive property damage in the two searched homes.

Soldiers also assaulted Bannoura’s son-in-law who was identified as Elias Khair.

The Israeli army gave no reason for the attack or the location where Bannoura was taken.
