IOF kidnaps at least 10 Palestinians, Friday overnight

PNN/Bethlehem

Israeli soldiers have kidnapped, on Thursday evening, two young Palestinians in Silwan town, south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied Jerusalem.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan (Silwanic) has reported that the Israeli soldiers searched homes, and kidnapped Sami al-Ghazali, 25, and Ali al-Abbassi, 23.
Also on Thursday evening, after clashes erupted due to a IOF invasion in Teqoua town, east of Bethlehem,  a young Palestinian man was injured by the IOF fire.

He was shot with a live round in his thigh, and was moved to a local hospital for treatment.

The young Palestinians throw stones and empty bottles on them, while the IOF fired live rounds, rubber-coated steel bullets and gas bombs.

On Friday at dawn, the Israeli soldiers also kidnapped four Palestinians in Nablus district and four in Ramallah.

According to the IOF spokesperson, seven of them were “Hamas operatives,” while the eighth was detained for “illegal activities.”

Palestinians sources identified four of the detainees as Hassan Urdnniyyeh in Nablus, Anas al-Barghouthi in Kobar village near Ramallah, and Tareq al-Sheikh and Jihad Hmeidan in Biddu town east of occupied Jerusalem.

Nearly 7,000 Palestinians are currently being held in Israeli jails, many of whom were detained during the near-daily raids carried out by the IOF in Palestinian towns and villages.
Such raids are often carried out in areas under full Palestinian jurisdiction and frequently lead to clashes between Palestinian residents and the IOF.
