Israeli soldiers invaded, on Saturday evening, the town of Sebastia, north of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and abducted a young Palestinian man in addition to wounding several others.

Mohammad Azem, the mayor of Sebastia, said many armored Israeli military vehicles invaded the town, before Palestinian youngsters protested the invasion and hurled stones at them.

Azem added that the soldiers fired many rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs, causing scores of Palestinians to suffer the effects of teargas inhalation.

The soldiers also abducted a young man, identified as Rezeq Nahedh Aqel, and took him to a nearby military base.
