Israeli soldiers invaded, on Sunday at dawn, Balata town and Orif village, east and south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, before breaking into and ransacking several homes, and abducted four Palestinians, including two siblings.

Media sources said several army vehicles invaded the Balata town from many directions, before the soldiers started violent searches of homes.

They added that the soldiers abducted Hamdi Mohammad Dweikat, and his brother, Mousa, in addition to Ibrahim Dweikat.

The soldiers also invaded Orif village, south of Nablus, searched homes and abducted Rizqallah Fahmi Safadi, 28.

In addition, the soldiers invaded the home of a former political prisoner, identified as Mohammad Huwwari, and handed him an order summoning him for interrogation on May 15th.

It is worth mentioning that, two days ago, several illegal Israeli colonists attacked a school in Orif village, and caused damage to some of its windows in the eastern part of the educational facility.
