On Sunday dawn, Israeli soldiers abducted thirteen Palestinian construction workers in Barta’a town, southwest of Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Sammour added that the soldier searched and ransacked several apartments and abducted thirteen Palestinian construction workers before moving them to an interrogation facility.

He also said that the army has recently escalated its violations against the Palestinian workers, especially in areas near the Annexation Wall, abducted many workers, and injured several others after attacking them with live fire for not obtaining permits to work in occupied Jerusalem.
