Early Tuesday, eight Palestinians, including two minors, were kidnapped by Israel forces from the West Bank, according to reports by local security sources and activists.

WAFA reports that, in the Bethlehem district, Israeli forces raided Taqou‘ to the east of the city, where they arrested three Palestinians between the ages of 17 and 19 years after breaking into and ransacking their homes.

They also raided Aida refugee camp to the north of the city, where they abducted one Palestinian after breaking into and ransacking his home.

Israeli troops also raided the neighborhood of al-Kharruba, in Jenin, taking one Palestinian after storming his home in a similar fashion.

Using canine dogs, troops also raided al-Marah neighborhood, where they kidnapped a 17-year-old Palestinian after breaking into his home.

In the Ramallah district, troops took into custody a student of Birzeit University, who is also a resident of Jenin, after breaking into the school's dormitory, according to the Palestinian Prisoners' Society.

Furthermore, in the Jericho district, troops abducted a Palestinian from Aqbat Jaber, after breaking into and ransacking his home.

In related Tuesday news, WAFA reports that three Palestinians were shot and injured, while dozens of others suffocated from teargas inhalation, during clashes with Israeli forces in Hebron.

According to security sources, the clashes erupted in the Hebron University neighborhood and Tareq Bin Ziad junction. Israeli troops fired rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters at local residents and students, injuring three and causing dozens others to suffer from excessive tear gas inhalation.

Two Palestinians were reported to have been directly injured in the head and the knee, and were evacuated to a Hebron hospital; suffocation cases were treated at the scene.

The clashes erupted just following the killing of Marwan Al Qawasmi and 'Amer Abu 'Aisha, two Palestinians Israel had accused (without proof) of the fatal abduction of three Israeli teenagers on June 12 of this year.
