Undercover Israeli soldiers, kidnapped, on Thursday evening, three young Palestinian men in Birzeit town, north of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

Eyewitnesses said the undercover soldiers ambushed a Palestinian car on the road between Birzeit and Jifna village, north of Ramallah, before kidnapping the three young men.

They added that one of the abducted Palestinians has been identified as Abdul-Rahman Jalis, from the al-Jalazoun refugee camp, north of Ramallah.

The undercover soldiers then forced the three Palestinians into their car and drove away before handing them to a regular army unit, before they were taken to an unknown destination.
