On Thursday, Israeli soldiers abducted a Palestinian judge and his brother in a town west of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said several army jeeps invaded Taffouh town, west of Hebron, and abducted a District Court Judge, Bassam Abdul-Karim Ezreiqat, and his brother Essam, after storming their homes and ransacking them.

They said the soldiers interrogated the two Palestinians while searching their homes and took them to an unknown destination.

The soldiers also installed roadblocks in several parts of the Hebron governorate, stopped and searched many cars, and interrogated the Palestinians while inspecting their ID cards.

On Thursday dawn, the soldiers abducted fourteen Palestinians from several parts of the occupied West Bank.
