Palestine: Israeli soldiers invade Silwan, clashes reported


By Saed Bannoura
IMEMC News: Israeli soldiers invaded on Sunday evening, the al-Bustan neighborhood in Silwan, in occupied Jerusalem, leading to clashes with local youths, before the soldiers broke into a home of a former political prison, and kidnapped him.


The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan stated that the soldiers kidnapped Samah Sarhan after breaking into his home and searching it.
The Center added that violent clashes took place for more than two hours after the soldiers invaded the al-Louza neighborhood, and that the army fired dozens of concussion grenades, gas bombs and rubber-coated bullets targeting the Palestinians, in addition to various homes and stores in the town.
It also stated that a number of young Palestinian men threw Molotov cocktails and stones at cars driven by undercover Israeli soldiers, who infiltrated the town in an attempt to kidnap residents.
Some of the cars driven by the undercover soldiers were hit, but no injuries were reported.
Eyewitnesses stated the soldiers also fired three concussion grenades into a local carpet store, causing property damage.
The Wadi Hilweh center also stated that the soldiers prevented its cameraman, Majd Gheith, from entering the al-Louza neighborhood, and attacked him before forcing him out while pointing their guns at him.
