Israeli soldiers abducted, on Monday at dawn, at least forty-three Palestinians, more than half of them are children, after the army invaded dozens of homes in the al-‘Isawiya town, in occupied East Jerusalem, and violently searched them, while a military helicopter flew overhead.

Raed Abu Mayyala, a member of the Follow-Up Committee in al-‘Isawiya, said dozens of soldiers and undercover officers, invaded the town from several directions, before storming into dozens of homes and ransacking them, causing excessive damage.
