Israeli soldiers have kidnapped, on Tuesday at dawn, three Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem, and one Palestinian in Beit Fajjar town, south of Bethlehem, after the army stormed and searched homes, and stores.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan (Silwanic) has reported that the soldiers invaded homes in the al-‘Isawiyya town, in the center of Jerusalem city, and kidnapped two Palestinians. The soldiers also invaded Anata town, northeast of Jerusalem, and kidnapped one Palestinian, after storming his home and searching it.

Troops also invaded several neighborhoods and towns, in the Jerusalem district, especially Anata, Shu’fat, Silwan and Abu Dis, and clashed with local youths who hurled stones on the military vehicles.

In addition, the soldiers invaded Beit Fajjar town, south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, searched a few homes and kidnapped a young man. Local sources said that clashes took place in several parts of the town, after the soldiers invaded them. Youngsters hurled stones on the military vehicles, while the army fired gas bombs and concussion grenades.

Also at dawn, the soldiers invaded several Palestinian communities in the northern West Bank districts of Nablus, Jenin and Tulkarem, searched many homes, and kidnapped six Palestinians.

Late on Monday night, two Palestinian security officers were injured after a number of fanatic Israeli settlers hurled stones on their car, driving on the Yitzhar road, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

Palestinian security sources said several settlers attacked the car, wounding Emad Saleh and Majd Saleh, causing various cuts and bruises. Israeli soldiers arrived at the scene, before an Israeli ambulance came over and provided them with the needed medical treatment, as the road is under full Israeli military and security control. The two Palestinian officers suffered mild-to-moderate injuries; they were later moved by local medics to a Palestinian hospital.
