Israeli soldiers abducted, on Friday at dawn, five Palestinians, all former political prisoners, from their homes in the Ramallah governorate, in the central West Bank.

Media sources said the soldiers invaded the al-Jenan neighborhood in the al-Biereh city, near Ramallah, before storming and ransacking several homes, and abducted three Palestinians.

The sources identified the abducted Palestinians as Saji Aabed, Bara’ Abdul-Samad, and Falah Nada.

The soldiers also invaded Betunia town, searched homes before abducting Maher al-Qadi and Sami Hussein.

The soldiers also invaded Ni’lin town, searched a few homes, and summoned several young men for interrogation.

The invasion led to protests before the soldiers fired a few live rounds, gas bombs, and rubber-coated steel bullets.
