On Friday dawn, Israeli soldiers abducted seven Palestinians from several parts of the occupied West Bank.
In the central West Bank in Ramallah, the soldiers abducted a former political prisoner, Khaled Talal Srour, after storming and ransacking his home in Ni’lin town, west of the city. Israel imprisoned Sour for two years, and was only released nearly 45 days ago.
In the West Bank’s southern part in Hebron, the soldiers abducted Khaled Hamdan Halayqa from the Shiokh town, northeast of the city, after stopping him at a military roadblock near Bethlehem.
The soldiers also stormed and ransacked homes in Hebron city, Ath-Thaheriyya and Doura towns, and the Al-Fawwar refugee camp and searched many homes before abducting Assem Bader, Ahmad Salman Abu Sondos, Thaher Jihad Abu Sondos, Adel Shaker Ishnaiwer, and Diyar Kamel Abu Hashhash.
Protests were reported at the entrance of the Al-Arroub refugee camp, north of Hebron; the soldiers fired live rounds while Palestinian protesters hurled stones and a few Molotov cocktails.
In Jericho, in the northeastern West Bank, Palestinian resistance fighters exchanged fire with Israeli soldiers at a roadblock at the southern entrance of the city.
Several army jeeps also invaded Tuqu’ town, east of Bethlehem, and drove in various neighborhoods before withdrawing.
In Qalqilia, in the northwestern West Bank, several army jeeps invaded Kufur Qaddoum town, east of the city, leading to protests, before the soldiers fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.
