Five Palestinians have been injured, on Friday evening, and three others kidnapped by Israeli soldiers who invaded Silwad town, east of the central West Bank city of Ramallah. Dozens of residents suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.

Local sources said that the soldiers invaded the Silwad through its western entrance and clashed with dozens of local youth.

The soldiers fired rounds of live ammunition, rubber-coated metal bullets, concussion grenades and gas bombs. Five residents were injured by rubber-coated metal bullets; many suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.

The soldiers also kidnapped three teenagers identified as Ahmad Hatem Hamed, 19, Ra’fat Radwan Hamed, 18, and Assef Omar Hamed, 18.

Soldiers detonated the front doors of the homes of the kidnapped Palestinians, and also detonated the main gate of a local kindergarten before violently searching the grounds, causing excessive property damage.
