Israeli soldiers abducted, on Sunday evening, two young Palestinian men in the al-‘Isawiya town, northeast of the occupied capital, Jerusalem, in the West Bank. In addition, a young man from Silwan received an open-ended travel ban.
Local sources said several army jeeps invaded the town before the soldiers stopped many Palestinians and interrogated them while inspecting their ID cards.
They added that the soldiers abducted two young men, identified as Ahmad Abul-Hafeth Atiya and Ismael Yousef Mheisin, and took them to an interrogation facility in Jerusalem.
In Silwan town, south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, the soldiers summoned for interrogation a young man, identified as Ramzi al-Abbasi, the Wadi Hilweh Information Center In Silwan (Silwanic) said.
Israeli Intelligence officers interrogated Ramzi for several hours before handing an order preventing him from traveling without setting a timeframe for this travel ban.
The young man said the officers confiscated his passport and added that he was preparing to participate in a conference in Istanbul this coming Thursday; however, the Israeli intelligence officers alleged this conference “supports terrorism” and that he “provides information to terrorist groups.”
Al-Abbasi said the conference is a social and popular event, adding that he was among a few Palestinians representing Jerusalem in the forum.
