Israeli soldiers abducted, Thursday, two Palestinian siblings while driving from Jericho, in northeastern West Bank, to their homes near Ramallah, in central West Bank.

The Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) said the soldiers abducted Mahmoud Walid Ismael, 30, and his brother Odai, 25, from Ein Arik village, west of Ramallah.

WAFA added that Odai is a Customs Officer with the Palestinian Authority.

The soldiers also stopped and searched dozens of cars, and interrogated scores of Palestinians while inspecting their ID cards.
