Israeli forces abducted, on Friday and Saturday, a number of Palestinians, and invaded various parts of the occupied West Bank, according to local sources.

Late Saturday night, Israeli forces abducted a Palestinian young man while he attempted to pass through the “Ya’bad/Mevo Dotan” military roadblock, located near the Palestinian town of Ya’bad, west of Jenin in the northern occupied West Bank.

The young man was identified as Abd al-Malik Abu Salah, from the town of Arraba, southwest of Jenin, according to Palestinian security sources.

Meanwhile, soldiers invaded the towns south of Jenin, namely, Misiliyah, Arraba, Mirka, and Fahmah al-Jadidah, in addition to the villages of Jalboun, Faqqu’a, Beit Qad, and Arabunah’ east and northeast of the city.

On Saturday evening, Israeli soldiers abducted a young man whose identity was not known at the time of writing this report, from the Bab Al-Hadid gate of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem.

Earlier Saturday, the occupation army assaulted and abducted a Palestinian youth after he allegedly entered into the illegal “Otniel” colony, southwest of Hebron in the southern part of the West Bank.

Reports stated that the unarmed young man, identified as Orwa Ahmed Ismail Hawamdeh, 26, from the nearby town of Al-Samou’, was abducted by occupation soldiers after he was assaulted by illegal Israeli settlers.

After his assault and abduction, soldiers invaded Al-Samou’ town, broke into and searched the young man’s family home, and interrogated his family members.

Soldiers also stormed other Palestinian-owned homes and confiscated surveillance cameras.

Furthermore, on Saturday, Israeli forces abducted two Palestinians in Sebastia village, northwest of Nablus city in the northern occupied West Bank, according to Mohammad Azem, the mayor of the town.

Azem stated that armed Israeli colonizers surrounded and attacked the home of Fadi Mukhimar, which he and another family member attempted to confront.

Israeli soldiers arrived at the home to abduct Fadi Mukhimar and Baha Mukhimar, for defending their home, instead of arresting the attacking settlers, the mayor reported.

In related news, the occupation army stormed, on Saturday, several areas in the Nablus governorate, which led to protests among Palestinians.
