The Israeli army kidnapped four Palestinian civilians during an attack targeting the village of Na’alen, located near the central West Bank city of Ramallah on Thursday morning.

Local sources reported that Israeli troops invaded the village searched homes then kidnapped Khalil Sourur, Abed Sourur, Abed Al Qaher Souror, and Ayad Sadek.

Ayman Nafei, the mayor of Na’alen village said that those kidnappings were aimed at foiling a nonviolent action that was going to take place today in the village against the Israeli illegal wall.

Nafei added that the Israeli wall will annex 2500 Dunoms of the village lands ( one Acer = 4 Dunoms). The village of Na’alen has lost 40000 Dunoms of land during the 1948 war.

Earlier this week the Israeli army attacked a nonviolent protest organized by the villagers of Na’alen, at least 20 civilians were injured by the army fire.
