Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center, for Monday July 29th, 2013.

Israeli soldiers kidnap six civilians in morning invasions targeting West Bank communities and settlers attack farmers. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.

Israeli soldiers kidnapped on Monday at dawn six Palestinian civilians during invasions targeting the southern West Bank district of Hebron.

Local sources said that troops invaded Al Aroup refugee camp near Hebron and clashed with local youth then kidnapped three teenagers aged 14 years old.

In Beit Omer town nearby, soldiers searched and ransacked homes then kidnapped one man. Later troops invaded the old city part of Hebron searched homes and kidnapped two teenagers as well.

Elsewhere, in northern West Bank, Israeli settlers attacked Palestinian farmers near the village of Sanour and also attack Palestinian cars driving at the Nablus-Jenin road.

Local sources announced that the settlers came back to the evacuated settlement of Tarsalah and conducted their attacks from there.

The settlement of Tarsalah was evacuated in 2005 and settlers are attempting to go back to it ever since.

According to international law all Israeli settlements in the west Bank are illegal and should be removed.
In other news, a bus load of family members of political detainees from the Gaza strip was allowed by the Israeli army to leave the coastal region to visit their family members held by the Israeli army.

According to the Red Cross Society this visits is the first in six years and is part of the deal reached between the Palestinian detainees and the Israeli army last year after the hunger strike protest the prisoners did.
