Dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded on Thursday at dawn [June 27 2013] the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and kidnapped three Palestinians, including two former fighters of the Al-Aqsa Brigades, the armed wing of the Fateh movement.

Local sources have reported that the army broke into several homes of residents and former fighters, and violently searched them causing excessive damage.

The army claimed that it was searching for weapons that are allegedly in the possession of the fighters.

Some of the searched homes belong to Nasser Al-Kharraz, Shadi As-Sakhel, Mazen Ad-Dibik, and Ali Salama.

Soldiers also kidnapped Samer Eiraan, 33, and Fateh’s Secretary in the Northern Mountain area, Allam Al-Qarm, 35, and a resident identified as Hassan Abdul-Haq, 20.

Israel previously pardoned dozens of Fateh fighters as part of an agreement with the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, but the army kidnapped and imprisoned some of them.

The fighters were pardoned under the condition of handing their weapons and ceasing their activities, Israel claims they ‘violated the terms of their release’.
