On Monday at dawn, Israeli soldiers invaded three villages and towns near Bethlehem city in the occupied West Bank, searched homes, abducted two Palestinians, and interrogated one.

Media sources said the soldiers invaded and searched homes in Beit Fajjar town, south of Bethlehem, before abducting Tareq Mohammad Khaled Thawabta, 20.

The soldiers were also trying to abduct Tareq’s brother, Khaled; however, he wasn’t home, so the army informed the family that Khaled needed to head to Etzion military base and security center, south of Bethlehem.

The sources added that the soldiers also invaded Marah Rabah village, south of Bethlehem city, and abducted Mahmoud Abdullah Taqatqa, 22, from his home.

The invasion into the small village was carried out by at least six armored military vehicles.
