Israeli soldiers invaded, on Monday at dawn, many communities in the central West Bank governorate of Ramallah, searched and ransacked many homes, and abducted three young men. The soldiers also shot four Palestinians, one seriously, on Sunday at night.
Media sources said dozens of soldiers invaded the al-Mazraâa al-Gharbiyya village, northwest of Ramallah, before abducting Bassel Ladawda, and the head of Birzeit University Studentsâ Council, Yahia Rabeaâ.
They added that the soldiers also searched homes in Deir Abu Mashâal village, west of Ramallah, and abducted Omar Mahmoud Rabeaâ.
On Sunday at night, dozens of soldiers invaded Deir Abu Mashâal, and fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs and concussion grenades, at local youngsters who hurled stones at the invading military vehicles.
Medical sources in Ramallah said the soldiers also fired live rounds at a Palestinian car in the village, wounding four residents including one who suffered a serious injury.
The seriously wounded Palestinian was rushed to a local hospital, before being moved to the Najah Hospital in Nablus, in northern West bank.
