Israeli soldiers invaded, on Friday afternoon, the Ein al-Louza neighborhood in Silwan town, in occupied Jerusalem, and kidnapped six Palestinians. The soldiers also removed and confiscated a protest tent in the town.
The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan (Silwanic) said dozens of soldiers, and police officers, invaded the neighborhood, and confiscated a protest tent installed by the residents in cooperation with the Committee for Defending Silwan Homes.
The tent was installed by the residents to protest Israelâs plan to demolish a number of Palestinian homes in Silwan.
Silwanic said the soldiers kidnapped Jalal al-âAbbassi, Firas al-âAbbassi, Mousa al-âAbbassi, Mohammad Abu Tayeh and Khaled Abu Tayeh, in Ein al-Louza neighborhood.
The soldiers kidnapped Mousa al-âAbbassi after stopping his truck, carrying plastic chairs.
The army claimed he was sending the chairs to the protest tent, but the Palestinian said he was sending the chairs to a wedding of one of his relatives, and showed the interrogator the official invitation card. He was released after receiving a warning, ordering him not to transfer chairs to Ein al-Louza.
In addition, the army kidnapped Jawad Siyam, the head of the Wadi Hilweh Information Center, after accusing him of attempting to block traffic to prevent the soldiers from arresting the above-mentioned Palestinians.
He was released later, and was given an interrogation order in the Police Station in Salaheddin Street, in Jerusalem, in addition to being ordered to pay a fine.
