Israeli soldiers have kidnapped, earlier on Wednesday, at least fifteen Palestinians, in various military invasions targeting different parts of the occupied West Bank, including Jerusalem. The soldiers also demolished an under-construction building in Jerusalem.In occupied Jerusalem, the soldiers stormed and searched many homes, and kidnapped four Palestinians, including a child.
The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan (Silwanic) has reported that the soldiers kidnapped Mahmoud Shaweesh, 15, from the Suwwana neighborhood, in Jerusalem.
The soldiers also kidnapped Luay Abu al-Hummus, from his home in the al-’Isawiyya town, in the center of Jerusalem, and violently searched the property, in addition to Ahmad al-Faqeeh and Mohammad al-Faqeeh, from their homes in Qotna town, northwest of Jerusalem.
Silwanic said the soldiers shot al-Faqeeh before abducting him.
Also in Jerusalem, the soldiers demolished an under-construction residential building in the at-Tour village, east of occupied Jerusalem, allegedly for being built without a permit.
The building contained three floors of 250 square meters each, and its owners started building it approximately four months ago.
Israel imposes tight restrictions on the Palestinians in occupied Jerusalem, in addition to excessive fees and complicated procedures, in an attempt to prevent them from building homes, or expanding existing ones, an issue that pushes growing families to build before obtaining a permit, while at the same time filing legal paperwork.
The fines and fees imposed on them are in most cases much higher than construction costs.
