Several soldiers also invaded the homes of Legislator Jamal Teerawy, and resident Mohammad Ash-Sheikh, and searched them causing property damage. Both are former political prisoners.

The Palestine News & Info Agency (WAFA) has reported that several armored Israeli military jeeps invaded the Al-Khader town, south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, and kidnapped one resident.

WAFA said that the army kidnapped Hussein Eid Abed Rabbo, 25, after violently breaking into his home and searching it.

In related news, one Palestinian identified as Mike Khalil Sokkar, 35, from Beit Jala city near Bethlehem, was violently attacked and beaten by a number of soldiers and was moved to the Beit Jala governmental hospital suffering fractures in his fingers. He was attacked by the soldiers in Jerusalem.

Mohammad Awad, spokesperson of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Beit Ummar, stated that the army invaded various neighborhoods and searched several homes in Al-Bayada neighborhood before kidnapping Odai Mahmoud Awad, 24.

Awad is a former political prisoner who spent three years in Israeli prisons, and the brother of Mohammad who was shot, injured and kidnapped by the army eight months ago.

Soldiers also kidnapped Montaser Ali Ikhlayyil, 22, and handed his brother Jihad, 22, a warrant ordering him to head to the Gush Etzion military base for interrogation.

Furthermore, several soldiers invaded the home of Issa Sleiby, and ordered him to accompany them to the bakery of his brother Mohammad near the Big Mosque in Beit Ummar.

Mohammad was not at his bakery, and the soldiers told his brother that he needs to head to the military base in the illegal settlement of Karmie Tzur for interrogation.

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Thursday morning raided the Beit Ummar village in the southern West Bank district of Hebron and detained two Palestinians, deploying heavily throughout the morning.

Israeli forces raided several neighborhoods and homes, detaining Odai Awad, 24, in the al-Bayyada area and Muntasir Ikhaleyel, 22, in the center of the village, spokesman for the Popular Committee in Beit Ummar Mohammad Ayyad Awad said.

Both detentions were made following raids on their family home, owned by fathers Mahmud Abed al-Aziz Awad and Ibrahim Ali Akel Ikhalyel respectively, Awad said.

Odai has served three years in Israeli prisons and his brother, Mohammed, has been in detention for the last eight months, the spokesman added. Muntasir was recently released from an Israeli jail, he added.

Meanwhile, forces handed down a summons order to 18-year-old to Jihad Ikhlayel, after raiding his father Nasser's home. Awad said Ikhlayel was asked to report to the Etzion detention center in Bethlehem.

The Israeli army also searched for a member of the al-Slaibi family, who owns a bakery near the al-Kabir mosque. His brother Alaa was asked to inform him that he had been summoned to the army base in Karmi Tzur, an illegal Israeli settlement outpost in the southern West Bank district of Hebron. The request was made after raiding the family home, owned by Issa al-Slaibi.

Forces remained highly deployed in the village throughout the morning, accompanied by several military vehicles.

An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed the detention and said it was for "illegal activity," but added that she did not know the specifics of the detention.
