On Friday morning, Israeli soldiers, including undercover officers, invaded Abu Dis town, east of the occupied Palestinian capital, Jerusalem, in the West Bank, abducted at least four Palestinians, including one child, injured many others, and caused a fire in one home.

Media sources said dozens of soldiers, police officers, and undercover soldiers invaded the town, stormed, and ransacked many homes; the soldiers also used dogs to search the invaded homes and buildings.

Also, the army occupied the rooftops of several buildings and homes to use as firing posts and monitoring towers.

They added that the soldiers interrogated many Palestinians in their homes before abducting five identified as Mohammad Al-Hout, Mohammad Amer Abu Hilal, Moayyad Monir Atallah, Jawhar Jawhar and Mohammad Nabil Bader.

Local sources said the invasions and arrests led to protests in several parts of the town and added that the army caused a fire in one home after firing gas bombs and concussion grenades at it.
