Israeli troops abducted, early on Tuesday, several Palestinian residents, including a woman, in the internationally-recognized occupied East Jerusalem.

Wadi Hilweh Information Center in the Silwan neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem, reported that Israeli intelligence service, backed by Israeli troops, broke into the Wadi Hilweh neighborhood, stormed and vandalized a number of Palestinian residents’ homes.

The center said that during the attack, the soldiers abducted a Palestinian mother Um Mohammad Sharaf, 50, despite the fact that she suffers from chronic diseases.

It added that the troops carried out a number of other abductions in the Obaid neighborhood, resulting in the abduction of youths, Nayef Obaid, Mahmoud Obaid, Iyas Obaid, Majd Mustafa, Mohammad Obaid, Amjad Obaid, Ali Obaid and Mahmoud Obaid.

Israeli military violations, across occupied East Jerusalem, have escalated over the past couple of years, following the US statement that the entire Jerusalem area, including eastern Arab Palestinian part of the city, as capital of the occupation state of Israel.
