– World news –

The Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) has reported that Israeli soldiers abducted, on Thursday early morning, at least seventeen Palestinians, including children, after the army invaded and ransacked dozens of homes across the occupied West Bank, including Jerusalem al-Quds, IMEMC reported.

The PPS stated that the soldiers abducted six Palestinians, identified as Mohammad Hazem al-Masri, Ahmad Aladdin Yaghi, Qais Aladdin Yaghi, Ahmad Nasri Sabarna, Hammad Ahmad Abu Mariya, and Karam Ziad Abu Sara, from several parts of the southern West Bank governorate of Hebron.

The report added that the Israeli forces have also arrested people, mostly minors, from Nablus, Jenin, Ramallah and Hizma town, north of occupied East Jerusalem.

In Nablus, in northern West Bank, the soldiers abducted Soheib Bishkar, 17, and his brother Abdul-Rahman, 15, in addition to Ziad Abdul-Karim Hanani, Arqam Atef Hanani, and Luay Emad Mohammad.

The Israeli army frequently carries out wide-ranging arrest campaigns across the occupied West Bank on the pretext of searching for “wanted” Palestinians.

According to Palestinian figures, some 6,500 Palestinians continue to languish in Israeli detention facilities, including scores of women and hundreds of minors.
