The Jerusalem office of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) has reported that Israeli soldiers have kidnapped twelve Palestinians during extensive military invasions and searches of homes, in different parts of the occupied district.

The PPS stated that the soldiers invaded, on Sunday at dawn, Hizma town, northeast of Jerusalem, and kidnapped two young Palestinian men, identified as Fayez Mohammad Sbeih and Luay Hani Sbeih.

The soldiers also invaded the towns of al-‘Eesawiyya and Jabal al-Mokabber, and clashed with dozens of local youths who hurled stones and empty bottles at the military vehicles.

Undercover soldiers also infiltrated into the al-‘Eesawiyya and kidnapped three young men, identified as Mohammad Ashour Obeid, Ali Obeid and Mohammad Yousef Ateyya.

Regular army units invaded the town and fired many gas bombs, concussion grenades, and rubber-coated steel bullets.

They have been identified as Ali Oweisat, Fares Oweisat, Mahmoud Oweisat, Adnan Oleyyan, Mojahed Abda, and Obeida Abu Edheim.

On Sunday at dawn, the soldiers invaded several homes in the southern West Bank district of Hebron, and kidnapped two Palestinians, including a former political prisoner.
