Nine Palestinian civilians were kidnapped by Israeli troops on Wednesday during morning invasions targeting a number of West Bank communities.

Local sources reported invasions and house-to house searches in the village of Burka, northern West Bank, where all nine kidnapped men are from, plus additional searches in Bethlehem city and nearby villages in the south.

The Israeli army radio announced that all those kidnapped were taken to military dentition camps for questioning and that they are on what the army call wanted list.
