Israeli soldiers abducted, on Wednesday at dawn, two Palestinians, including the head of a research and development center, in Jerusalem and Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank.

The soldiers invaded Kafr Aqab town, north of occupied East Jerusalem, and stormed the home of Obai ‘Aboudi, before violently searching the property, and took him to an unknown destination.

The Palestinian is the head of Bisan Center for Research & Development; his wife said the soldiers stormed their home approximately at 3 at dawn, and ransacked it before abducting her husband.

In addition, the soldiers abducted Amro Barghouthi, 20, from his home in the at-Tira neighborhood, in Ramallah, in central West Bank. The Palestinian is a student of the nearby Birzeit University.
