Israeli forces invaded the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem on Saturday and took over a public transportation bus on Saturday afternoon.  The troops detained all of the passengers, then abducted eight of them and took them to an unknown location.

The incident occurred when four army vehicles stormed the city in the early afternoon hours on Saturday.

The military vehicles surrounded a public bus near Deheishe refugee camp, on the western side of the city of Bethlehem.  Soldiers forced their way onto the bus, then forced the driver at gunpoint to drive the bus, full of Palestinian passengers, to an Israeli army post outside the city.

After some time, the bus and passengers were released, except eight men who were abducted by the soldiers and moved to an unknown detention camp.  The identities of the eight men have not been released at the time of this writing.
