Seventeen Palestinian civilians were reported to have been kidnapped on Monday by Israeli troops during pre-dawn invasions targeting a number of West Bank communities.Fifteen of those kidnapped were taken from the central West Bank city of Ramallah and nearby villages, local sources reported.

The Israeli military announced that those kidnapped were moved to military detention camps for questioning. The army clamed that all 17 men are on what it calls its ‘Wanted List’.

Last week the Israeli military conducted at least 23 military incursions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank. During those attacks troops kidnapped 28 civilians, including 9 children.
