On Monday evening, Israeli soldiers abducted a Palestinian and caused scores to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation, in Anata town, northeast of occupied Jerusalem in the West Bank.

Media sources said more than ten military vehicles invaded the town, before the soldiers stormed a home, violently searched it, and abducted one Palestinian.

They added that many Palestinians protested the invasion before the soldiers fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets, and gas bombs.

The soldiers closed the town’s southern and northern entrances, in addition to the continued closure of the military roadblock at the entrance of the nearby Shu’fat refugee camp.

The attacks came after the army imposed a siege on various Palestinian villages and towns, north and east of occupied Jerusalem, starting on Monday afternoon.
