Israeli forces invaded the West Bank city of Jericho on Wednesday morning and abducted two Palestinian men.

  Local sources reported that troops and army jeeps stormed and searched residents houses in 'Oqbat Jabir refugee camp in the southern side of Jericho. Soldiers left after several hours, taking with them Mohamed Mitiyer, 28, and Ibraheem Al Alam, 22, to an unknown military detention camp. Residents said that soldiers destroyed some the families belongings in the searched houses.

  The Israeli army claims that the two men are members of the Islamic Jihad. These claims were not confirmed by the residents of the Refugee camp.
