Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Centre,, for Monday, September 30, 2013

Israeli soldiers invade West Bank communities, search homes and kidnap five Palestinian civilians. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.

Israeli soldiers invaded on Monday different parts of the occupied West Bank, violently broke into several homes and kidnapped at least five Palestinians, including one child.

Several Israeli military jeeps invaded the Al-Mogheer village, northeast of the central West bank city of Ramallah, and kidnapped one child after breaking into his family’s home.

Earlier on Monday at dawn, dozens of soldiers invaded Yatta town, south of Hebron, broke into and violently searched several homes and kidnapped two brothers after searching their family homes.

Soldiers also invaded the southern West Bank city of Bethlehem, searched homes and kidnapped two residents.

Monday at dawn Israeli soldiers declared Khirbit Makhoul area, in the West Bank’s Northern Plains, a closed military zone. The Bedouin village was destroyed for the third time on September 19.

The Head of the Wadi Al-Maleh Village council, in the Jordan Valley, Aref Daraghma, stated that the soldiers declared the village a closed military zone after surrounding it.

Israel does not recognize dozens of small villages, Bedouin tribes, in the Northern Plains areas of the West Bank, and near occupied East Jerusalem, as well as near Hebron and other areas.

With no services, no recognition from the occupation, those villages have been repeatedly demolished, and removed, and the residents are frequently displaced due to Israel’s ongoing violations.
