Earlier Tuesday, Israeli soldiers abducted at least twenty Palestinians from their homes in several parts of the occupied West Bank.

In a statement, the Palestinian Prisoners Society and the Palestinian Detainees Committee stated that the soldiers stormed and ransacked dozens of homes across the occupied West Bank and interrogated many Palestinians while inspecting their ID cards.

They added that the soldiers abducted at least twenty Palestinians, including former political prisoners, and said the abductions were mainly focused in Tulkarem and included Bethlehem, Hebron, Nablus, Ramallah, Tubas, and Jerusalem.

During the invasions of homes, the soldiers assaulted many Palestinians while ransacking and causing damage to their homes and threatened to harm families if their “wanted” sons did not surrender.

Israeli soldiers have abducted at least 8165 Palestinians since October 7, 2023, mostly from their homes, in addition to many who were taken at military roadblocks, and those who turned themselves in to the army after the soldiers took members of their family’s hostages to force them to surrender.

The statement revealed that the Israeli army’s abductions of Palestinians include the abduction of women, children, patients, and elders.

In related news, the soldiers closed with sand mounds the main entrance of Jouret Ash-Sham’a village, south of Bethlehem; the road also leads to several surrounding villages and towns.

Also, paramilitary Israeli colonizers attacked and injured two Palestinian shepherds west of Kafr Ed-Deek town, west of the central West Bank city of Salfit.
