Welcome to Palestine Today, a service of the International Middle East Media Center,, for Monday, September 15th, 2014.

Israeli Settlers cut off power from Palestinian villagers and Israeli soldiers invade West Bank communities and kidnap civilians. These stories, and more, coming up, stay tuned.

Villagers of the Kufer Qaddum, near the northern West Bank city of Nablus reported on Monday that the village have been without the electricity since Thursday of last week. As a result six villagers who are dependent on oxygen machines have been evacuated to the nearby hospital in Nablus.

The deliberate power cut was an added rage to the weekly anti wall and settlement Friday demonstration in Kufr Qaddum. Residents explained that the village electricity comes from the illegal Qedumim settlement and that somebody decided to press the button and cut the supply to the whole village.

Elsewhere, Israeli soldiers invaded, on Monday at dawn, the town of Beit Ummar, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and kidnapped three Palestinians. Two more Palestinians have been kidnapped in Bethlehem.

Local sources said the soldiers invaded several homes in Beit Ummar near Hebron, and violently searched them, before kidnapping three Palestinians. In addition, the soldiers invaded and searched a number of homes in Doura nearby town, and installed a roadblock at its main entrance.

Also near Bethlehem city, Palestinian medical sources have reported that several residents have been injured, on Sunday evening, during clashes with Israeli soldiers invading the ‘Aida refugee camp, north of Bethlehem.
Local sources said that dozens of soldiers invaded the eastern area of the camp, and clashed with a number of youth who hurled stones and empty bottles at them,

while the army fired gas bombs, and rubber-coated metal bullets at both the youth and a number of homes.
Medical sources said a number of residents received treatment for the effects of teargas inhalation, and received treatment by field medics.
