Israeli soldiers abducted, on Sunday morning, two Palestinian youths from the internationally-recognized occupied East Jerusalem, in the southern West Bank.

Official Palestinian News Agency, WAFA, reported that Israeli forces broke into the homes of Belal Abu Alzaki and Qassam Halabiya, in Abu Dis town, east of Jerusalem.

WAFA said that the two youths were abducted and taken to an unknown destination.

In the meantime, Israeli troops invaded the Aida refugee camp, north of Bethlehem, in the southern West Bank, and broke into the home of Palestinian youth, Ahmad Hammad, before abducting him.

Israeli forces have intensified their invasion and abduction operations, across the occupied West Bank, particularly in East Jerusalem.

Noteworthy, last week, many residents of Abu Dis were injured by army fire of rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas, when they protested the military invasion of their neighborhood.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem in 1967, and more than 100,000 Palestinians currently reside there, surrounded by illegal settlement blocks.

Despite international law and United Nations resolutions, the current US administration declared the entire East and West Jerusalem, as the capital of Israel.

United Nations resolution 242, of 1967 stated that Israel must immediately withdraw from East Jerusalem, an occupied Palestinian territory.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states that it is forbidden for the occupier to transfer its population onto the land which it occupies.
