Five Palestinian civilians were kidnapped on Monday by Israeli troops during pre dawn military invasions targeting a number of West Bank communities.

Israeli soldiers ransacked and searched homes at a number of Palestinian cities then took them men away, local sources reported.

The military radio announced that all kidnapped men were taken to military camps for questioning.

Last week the Israeli army conducted at least 14 military invasions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank. Israeli troops kidnapped at least 20 people, including 6 children.
