Israeli soldiers abducted, shortly after midnight, three Palestinians near the African Neighborhood, adjacent to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied East Jerusalem.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers abducted Abboud Abu Sneina, Mustafa Abu Sneina and Mohammad Asaliyya, and took them to an interrogation facility in the city.

The Israeli army claimed that several young men hurled stones, and used fireworks, against the soldiers in the area.

The soldiers fired many concussion grenades and gas bombs.
