Israeli soldiers abducted, late on Thursday at night, two young Palestinian men, from their homes in occupied East Jerusalem.

Several army jeeps invaded al-’Isawiya, in the center of Jerusalem, searched homes and abducted Amjad Shafiq ‘Obeid.

The soldiers also abducted Issa Met’eb, after repeatedly assaulting him, in Jerusalem’s Old City, causing various cuts and bruises.

In related news, the army released Nasser Ja’far, a senior member of Fateh movement, in Jerusalem.

The Palestinian received an injunction barring him from entering al-Khan al-Ahmar, and was ordered to sign a suspended sentence of 5000 Shekels.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli High Court issued, on Thursday, an injunction temporarily halting the demolition of al-Khan al-Ahmar and granted the army until July 11th to respond to a petition by the families in which they said they have unfairly been denied construction permits.
