IMEMC & Agencies: Monday at dawn, dozens of Israeli soldiers invaded the Kufur Ni’ma village, west of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, and kidnapped a Palestinian journalist.

Local sources have reported that the soldiers violently broke into the house of Mohammad Omar Ad-Deek, 24, searched the property, causing excessive damage, and kidnapped him.
The Cultural and Central Media Committee of the Popular Struggle Front, said that the abduction of Ad-Deek, is another assault against the Palestinian journalist and Freedom of Speech.
It said Ad-Deek is one of its members, and a student of the Democracy and Human Rights Department of the Birzeit University, near Ramallah. He has a degree in Journalism and Political Science.
Hasan Sheelo, secretary of the general committee of the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate, said that Israel is ongoing with its violations against the Palestinian people and journalists.
He added that Israel is currently holding captive twelve journalists, and is holding them under arbitrary Administrative Detention orders, without charges.
Sheelo demanded human rights groups, and the International Journalists Federation to intervene, and secure the release of all imprisoned reporters.
