Hundreds of Israeli soldiers invaded, overnight, 10 villages in the central West Bank district of Ramallah, searched dozens of homes and property, and confiscated surveillance tapes, looking for the shooters who seriously wounded one Israeli settler, and moderately injured three others.The Palestinian TV has reported that the army invaded the villages of al-Mogheer, Deir Jarir, Silwad, al-Jalazoun, Kufur Malek, Sinjel, Abu Falah, Beiteen, Rammoun and Tormos Ayya.

The soldiers interrogated the families while extensively searching and ransacking their homes and property, causing excessive damage, and confiscated surveillance tapes from a number of homes and stores, in an attempt to locate any footage that could provide information on the shooters.

Israeli Ynet News said the wounded Israelis were driving back home after a basketball game, and that the shooting took place at the Shvut Rachel junction, near Shilo settlement, in the occupied West Bank.

In Jerusalem, soldiers kidnapped Amjad al-Basety and Mohammad Ibrahim in the Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards in occupied East Jerusalem, and took them to a nearby police station.

The two were taken prisoner after smaller groups of Israeli extremists stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards, through the al-Magharba Gate, accompanied by soldiers and police officers.

A mosque guard told a reporter, of the WAFA Palestinian News Agency, that the two were kidnapped when they intervened after the soldiers attacked a woman who was arguing with them for continuing to facilitate the provocative tours conducted by extremist groups into the mosque compound.
