The Israeli army invaded the town of Abu Dies east of the city of Jerusalem in the central West Bank, and abducted three Palestinian children on Saturday morning.

Local sources reported that a massive Israeli army force invaded the town and searched and ransacked scores of residents homes, then took Sief Abu Hilal, 16, Mustafa Mihssen, 16, and Ghassan Lafi, 16, to unknown detention camps.

The boys’ families stated that Israeli troops gave no reason for taking their children.
