IMEMC & Agencies: Tuesday, Israeli soldiers kidnapped a Palestinian from the al-Jalazoun refugee camp. The kidnapped Palestinian is the brother of a young man who was shot, and killed, by the soldiers on January 29.

Local sources have reported that, on Tuesday at dawn, dozens of soldiers invaded the camp, and handed resident Abdul-Aziz Mubarak, 22, a military warrant ordering him to head to the Ofer Israeli military base, west of Ramallah, for interrogation.
Accompanied by his father, Abdul-Aziz headed to the Ofer base, and the soldiers took him prisoner without providing any further details.

On January 29, the army shot and killed his brother, Mohammad, 20, near the Ein Senia area, north of the central West bank city of Ramallah.

The family said that Mubarak, and other workers, were conducting repairs on the main Ein Senia road when soldiers, stationed on a nearby military tower, opened fire at him.

The Israeli army alleged that the slain Palestinian “was armed”, and “opened fire at an Israeli military post between Atarot and Halamesh settlements, north of Ramallah.

Eyewitnesses denied the Israeli claims, and confirmed that Mubarak was working, and did not carry a weapon of any sort.

The slain Palestinian was a flagger directing traffic while repairs were being conducted on the road.

The repairs are part of many projects funded by the USAID in different parts of the occupied West Bank.
