IMEMC & Agencies: Monday, Israeli soldiers kidnapped four Palestinians during a number of military invasions into Palestinian communities in the West Bank districts of Bethlehem and Hebron, while one resident was ordered to head to a military base for interrogation.

Local sources in Bethlehem have reported that dozens of soldiers invaded the Aida refugee camp, north of Bethlehem, and kidnapped two Palestinians.
The kidnapped have been identified as Mo’tasem Bassam Abu Khdeir, 18, and Ali Ahmad Abu Srour, 17; they were taken from their homes after the army violently broke into them, and searched them.
