Israeli soldiers abducted, Friday, several young Palestinian men in Qalandia area, north of occupied East Jerusalem, while trying to enter the city for Friday prayers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, on the second Friday of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.

Media sources said the soldiers chased and attacked several young Palestinian men, and prevented them from entering Jerusalem.

They added that the soldiers also abducted several young men, and took them to an unknown destination.

It is worth mentioning that, while Israel claims to allow the Muslim Palestinians to enter Jerusalem for Friday prayers, men under the age of 40 are denied access.

On Friday at dawn, the soldiers invaded Arraba town, southwest of the northern West Bank city of Jenin, searched homes, and abducted Mohammad Mazen Sha’er, 25.

In related news, a group of fanatic illegal Israeli colonists invaded Palestinian agricultural lands in ‘Aseera al-Qibliya village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and burnt them.
