Palestine: Seven kidnapped in West Bank and Jerusalem, 2 injured

International Middle East Media Center: Israeli forces raided several areas in the West Bank and Jerusalem, on Sunday, kidnapping 7 and injuring two, according to reports by local, media and security sources.

In the area of Salfit, Israeli forces kidnapped a youngster, aged 27, after fracturing his little brother’s hand and shattering his mother’s hand when they shut the door of a military vehicle on it, according to the Prisoner Club.

The forces also raided their home, damaging the contents.

In Bethlehem, the army stormed al-Doha town, to the west of the city, kidnapping a 20-year-old after breaking into and searching his home.

In Hebron, the Israeli army stormed Tarqumia village and abducted two youngsters aged 26 and 31.

Forces also invaded the nearby village of Samu’, taking with them one 28-year-old after raiding and searching his brother’s home. One other home was also entered and searched during the raid.

On Sunday afternoon, two Palestinians were abducted and another two and wounded by Israeli forces, after they raided a shop in al-Issawiya, Jerusalem.

Israeli forces raided a health shop belonging to Saad Mohammad Mustafa, at the southern entrance of the village, where they assaulted the owner and one customer.

One Palestinian suffered burns in his hand as forces used pepper spray, stun grenades and batons in their attacks on the people, in which they also verbally abused a number of women in the area. Mustafa was also injured, and was taken to a hospital for treatment.

These arrests and invasions are part of daily Israeli military violations against the Palestinian people, their lands and property, in different parts of the occupied West Bank, including occupied East Jerusalem.
