Israeli soldiers invaded, earlier Thursday, a Palestinian home in the al-Am’ari refugee camp, south of Ramallah, and kidnapped a father, his wife, and their five children, in addition to confiscating equipment from the family’s auto repair shop.

Media sources in Ramallah said several Israeli army vehicles invaded the refugee camp before breaking into the home of Mahran Abu Shousha, and violently searching it, causing excessive damage.

The soldiers then kidnapped the father, Mahran, his wife and their five children, and took them to an unknown destination.

The army also invaded the family’s car repair shop, on the ground level of the property, and confiscated several cars.

The invasion led to clashes between the soldiers and local youths who hurled stones at the military vehicles, while the soldiers fired many rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.

Two Palestinians were shot with rubber-coated steel bullets, and many others suffered the effects of teargas inhalation.
