Undercover Israeli soldiers infiltrated, on Monday at night, into Beit Jala city, north of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, and kidnapped a young Palestinian man.

Dressed as civilians, the soldiers, driving a car with Palestinian license plates, broke into a coffeeshop in the Sahl area in Beit Jala, kidnapped Hasan Mohammad Zaghari, 24, and drove away.

The young man, from the Deheishe refugee camp, south of Bethlehem, was then handed to a regular army unit waiting nearby by, and was taken to an unknown destination.
