The Israeli army attacked a number of Palestinian homes in the southern West Bank city Hebron, and took  three Palestinians as prisoners, including one minor, on Monday morning.

Sources in Hebron reported that the three taken prisoner are in fact from the same family, and were actually taken prisoner from a military checkpoint near the city of Hebron.  They were identified as Ziad Al Rijbi, 46, his son Harun, 16, and Samer Al Rijbi, 29. 


Meanwhile, inside the city limits, Israeli troops searched a number of residents' homes and ransacked their belongings in the old city.
