On Monday, Israeli soldiers abducted a Palestinian father just a week after the army abducted his sons in Beit Ummar town, north of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

Mohammad Awad, a local nonviolent activist in Beit Ummar, said the soldiers stormed and ransacked the home of former political prisoner Mershed Mohammad Za’aqeeq, 47, and abducted him.

Awad added that the Mershed’s abduction came just a week after abducting two sons, Majdi and Mahdi, both former political prisoners, after the soldiers invaded the family’s home.

In Hebron city, the soldiers prevented Palestinian journalists from bringing their equipment into the Ibrahimi Mosque to broadcast the al-Fitr Muslim feast prayers.

The soldiers also installed many roadblocks at Hebron’s northern and southern roads and the main entrances of Beit Awwa, Sa’ir, and Halhoul towns, before stopping and searching dozens of cars, and interrogating many Palestinian while inspecting their ID cards.
