On Tuesday, a group of illegal paramilitary Israeli colonizers attacked Palestinian homes in the Khalayel al-Louz area, south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, wounding a young man before Israeli soldiers abducted nine Palestinians, including siblings.

Hasan Breijiyya, the head of the Bethlehem office of the Wall And Colonization Resistance Commission, said the colonizers attacked a home owned by members of the local Obeyyat family in Bethlehem and hurled stones at them and their property.

He added that the colonizers also assaulted several Palestinians, wounding one who suffered various cuts and bruises.

Israeli soldiers invaded the village and started attacking the Palestinians defending their homes from the colonizers.

The soldiers fired many gas bombs and concussion grenades before abducting Yousef Obeyyat and Zakariyya Obeyyat.

The Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS) said the soldiers also abducted Walid Mohammad Abed, Saif Ahmad Abu Kamel, Tareq Ahmad Abu Kamel, Yousef Mohammad Hasan, in addition to Mohammad, Ahmad, and Rami Yosef Hasan.

Breijiyya said this attack is the third the colonizers carried out against the Palestinians in Khalayel al-Louz in one week.
