Israeli soldiers kidnapped, Monday at dawn, ten Palestinians during a number of invasions targeting several areas in the occupied West Bank.The Israeli army said that soldiers detained three Palestinians in the northern West Bank city of Nablus, four in the central West Bank city of Ramallah, one in Bethlehem and two in Hebron.
The army added that soldiers invaded Nablus in order to arrest “wanted” residents, and that a pipe bomb was hurled at a military jeep during the invasion; no damages or injuries were reported.
Furthermore, soldiers invaded Kharas village, near Hebron, in the southern part of the West Bank, and kidnapped Thaer Halahla, 31.
His father, Aziz, told the Ma’an News Agency, that at least 40 soldiers broke into his home and forced the family out before searching it using military dogs.
The soldiers also searched a room the family uses to store wheat, rice, sugar and other products.
Halahla added that his son was only released from an Israeli prison last month after spending seven years in prison, most of them in administrative detention without charges or trial. His brother, Shaher, was kidnapped by the army more than eight years ago and was sentenced to 17 years.
