Israeli soldiers abducted, on Thursday at dawn, one Palestinian in Bethlehem, and two others in Hebron, in the occupied West Bank, after the army invaded and searched several homes.

Media sources in Bethlehem, south of occupied East Jerusalem, said the soldiers invaded Jabal al-Mawaleh area, and abducted Hamza Osama al-‘Ajjouri, 26.

They added that the soldiers also invaded the nearby villages of Harmala, Hindaza, and Rakhma, near Bethlehem.

The soldiers also invaded the al-‘Arroub refugee camp, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and searched several homes, before abducting Rami Abed Jawabra and Ehab Jawabra.

Several Palestinians protested the invasion, and hurled stones at the army jeeps, while the soldiers fired gas bombs and concussion grenades at them and surrounding homes.
