On Friday dawn, Israeli soldiers invaded Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, abducted three young men, and injured at least two. The army also abducted a Palestinian in Yatta town, south of Hebron.
Local activist Mohammad Awad said many army jeeps invaded the Khallet Al-Ein and At-Tarbeeqa areas before storming and ransacking many homes, causing property damage.
He added that the soldiers abducted two former political prisoners, Allam Yousef Za’aqeeq and Firas Ibrahim Abu Mariya, in addition to Yousef Bader Awad; the soldiers assaulted and injured Firas before abducting him.
Many Palestinians protested the invasion before the soldiers fired many live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, gas bombs, and concussion grenades.
Medical sources said the soldiers shot two young men with live fire, one in the pelvis and one in the right thigh before the medics rushed them to a hospital suffering moderate-to-severe wounds.
Also, the soldiers invaded Yatta town, south of Hebron, and abducted a young man, Ehab Abu Zahra, from his home.
