The Israeli army conducted a wide scale search campaign to residents’ homes in Yatta town near the West Bank city of Hebron and took four prisoners Wednesday morning.

The campaign targeted homes located in the crowded areas of downtown.  Residents said that in all of the houses searched, soldiers violently forced the families out and ransacked their belongings.  When asked why, the soldiers said, "We are looking for Wanted people."

The four prisoners are called Adel Nassar, 33, Mohamed Nassar, 25, Abd Nassar, 30 and Radwan Qawasmi, 29.  All were taken to unknown locations, according to the prisoners’ society office in Hebron.
