On Saturday dawn, Israeli soldiers abducted four Palestinians from their homes in Deir Nitham village, northwest of Ramallah, in the central part of the occupied West Bank.

Media sources said several army jeeps invaded the village before the soldiers stormed, ransacked many homes, and interrogated several Palestinians while inspecting their ID cards.

They added that the soldiers abducted the secretary of the Fateh movement in the village, Qussai Thiab Tamimi, and his brother Lu’ay, in addition to Yazan Fadel Tamimi and his brother Mazen.

On Friday evening, the soldiers assaulted a young man, Qassem Anwar Al-‘Arouj, 22, in Tuqu’ Town, southeast of Bethlehem, causing various lacerations and bruises before Palestinian medics rushed him to Beit Jala governmental hospital for treatment.
