Dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded, on Friday at dawn, the town of Silwad, northeast of Ramallah, in central West Bank, broke into and ransacked several homes, and abducted four Palestinians, in addition to preventing local mosques from opening for dawn prayers.

The soldiers violently invaded and searched many homes in the town, illegally confiscated cars and sums of cash, tore many permits of laborers who work in Jerusalem, and confiscated several others.

The soldiers also abducted Ahmad Mousa Hamed, 51, and his son, Mousa, 17, in addition to Mohammad Omar Hamed, 23, and Mo’tasem Abdul-Majid Hamed.

It is worth mentioning that Ahmad is the father of Malek Hamed, who was detained by the army after killing an Israeli soldier and mildly wounding another, in what the military described as a “deliberate ramming attack.”

During the invasion of the family home, the soldiers took measurements of the property, in preparation for demolishing it later.

Furthermore, the soldiers prevented local mosques for opening for dawn prayers, and prevented the local from heading to them.

In related news, the soldiers abducted Islam Zobeidi and Mohammad al-Bokhari, from the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and Mohammad Omar Maslat, from Bethlehem.
