On Thursday, Israeli soldiers abducted five Palestinians from the northern part of the occupied West Bank in Jenin.

Media sources said the soldiers invaded Arraba town, southwest of Jenin, before storming and searching homes and proceeded to abduct Mohammad Abdul-Rauf Hamdan.

They added that the soldiers also abducted a former political prisoner, Nazeeh Sa’id Abu Awn, from his home in Jaba’ town, southwest of Jenin.

The soldiers also abducted Ahmad Rida Abu Salama from his home in Faqqu’a town, east of Jenin.

Protests occurred when the soldiers invaded Jaba’ before the army fired many concussion grenades, gas bombs, and rubber-coated steel bullets, causing several injuries mainly due to the severe effects of tear gas inhalation.

Many army jeeps were also deployed around the villages and towns of Arraba, Marka, al-Jarba, Anza, and Sanur near Jenin before the soldiers closed roads and prevented the Palestinians from crossing.

Furthermore, the soldiers abducted Bassem Nidal Abu ar-Rob and Salah Nazzal, from Qabatia town, south of Jenin, after stopping them at the Za’tara military roadblock, south of Nablus, in the northern part of the West Bank.
