Israeli soldiers abducted, on Thursday at dawn, twenty-five Palestinians from their homes in Hizma town, northeast of the occupied Palestinian capital, Jerusalem, in the West Bank.
The WAFA Palestinian News & Info Agency has confirmed that among the abducted Palestinians are several teachers, fathers, and their sons, in addition to former political prisoners.
It added that the Palestinians were abducted after the soldiers stormed and violently searched dozens of homes in the town and interrogated the residents.
The soldiers surrounded and isolated the town during the invasion, violent searches of homes, and the abduction of the Palestinians.
