Israeli soldiers kidnapped, on Tuesday evening, former hunger-striking detainee, Adnan Khader, near the northern West Bank city of Jenin, his family stated. Khader’s family said the soldiers stopped him at a roadblock near the Zaweya village, on the Jenin-Nablus road, and took him prisoner.
Protesting his arbitrary Administrative Detention, without charge or trial, Khader went on a 66-day hunger strike, until he won his freedom on April 17, 2012.
He started his strike on December 18, 2011, and ended it on February 21, 2012 when a deal for his release was reached.
In Teqoua’ town, near Bethlehem, soldiers broke into several homes, and violently searched them before kidnapping two Palestinians identified as Bilal Adel Abu Mfarreh, 23, and Rakan Ibrahim Jaddou’, 22.
Head of the Teqoua’ town council, Taiseer Abu Mfarreh, stated that clashes took place near the western entrance of the town, and that the soldiers fired dozens of gas bombs and concussion grenades, inflicting several injuries.
