Israeli soldiers abducted, on Thursday at dawn, a father of a Palestinian who was killed by Israeli army fire, on June 16th 2017, along with two other Palestinians, after stabbing and opening fire on Israeli soldiers, killing one and mildly wounding another, in Sultan Suleiman Street, near Bab al-Amoud (Damascus Gate), in occupied Jerusalem.

The soldiers invaded Deir Abu Mashal village, northwest of the West Bank city of Ramallah, and abducted Hasan Ankoush, the father of Adel Ankoush, 18, who was killed along with Bara’ Ibrahim Saleh, 18, and Osama Ahmad Ata, 19.
