Israeli soldiers abducted, on Sunday evening, a Palestinian young man near Bethlehem for allegedly attempting to snatch an Israeli soldier’s weapon.

According to Israel’s TV Channel 12, the young Palestinian man attempted to snatch the soldier’s gun near the Gush Etzion colony, south of Bethlehem, in the southern occupied West Bank.

The soldiers assaulted the Palestinian and dragged him away, before moving him to the nearby military base and security center.
