Israeli soldiers invaded, on Monday at dawn, the town of Beita, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and abducted a Palestinian from his home, in addition to installing sand mounds to close various roads.

Local sources said several army jeeps invaded the eastern area of the town, before storming and searching homes, and abducted a young man, identified as Mohammad Rashad Hamayel.

Many Palestinians protested the invasion, and hurled stones at the army jeeps, while the soldiers fired a few live rounds, in addition to gas bombs and concussion grenades.

Furthermore, Israeli military bulldozers installed sand mounds on several roads leaving to Beita.

The army claimed it closed the roads after Molotov cocktails were hurled at a bus heading to a nearby colony, close to Beita junction, on Sunday at night.
