Israeli soldiers abducted, on Monday at dawn, a Palestinian legislator, and a son of another legislator, after invading their homes, and searching them, in the southern West Bank district of Hebron. The soldiers also abducted a third Palestinian in the city.

The Hebron office of the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said a large military force surrounded the home of elected legislator Dr. Azzam Salhab, 60, and violently searched the property before abducting him.

It added that Dr. Salhab has been abducted and imprisoned four times since he was elected to the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), and was only released in July 2015, after being held under arbitrary detention orders, without charges or trial.

Also in Hebron, the soldiers abducted Anas, the son of legislator Hatem Qfeisha, after searching his home in Hebron city.

In addition, the soldiers abducted a man, identified as Assem Amro Obeid, from his home in Hebron. The three Palestinians were moved to Etzion military base and security center, north of Hebron.
