The Israeli army invaded the southern WEst Bank city of Hebron, and the nearby villages of Ithna and Al Samou'a on Monday morning, and took three residents prisoner.

Troops attacked residents houses, searched and ransacked them before taking Shaker Qafisha, 23, Iyad Gahisha, 32, from Ithna village, and Mohamed Al Badaren 20, from Al Samou'a village.

Residents said that troops forced families out of their homes in a very violent way during the search and did not allow them to keep the children inside due to the very clod weather.
