IMEMC & Agencies: Friday at dawn, several Israeli military vehicles invaded the Zababda town, in the northern West Bank district of Jenin, and kidnapped one Palestinian. The army also interrogated two brothers and threatened to kidnap them.
Israeli Channel 7 said that the army kidnapped a “wanted Palestinian”, and moved him to an interrogation facility.
The kidnapped Palestinian, Obeida Za’tary, 22, is a student of the Arab American University in Jenin; he is from Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.
The soldiers, including undercover forces, detonated the main door of the residential building where he lives, and kidnapped him. The building belongs to resident Anis Abbas.
Soldiers also interrogated Taha, 27, and Mahdi, 26, the sons of Abbas, and threatened to kidnap them should they conduct any future political activities. The two brothers are former political prisoners.
In related news, soldiers invaded Doura town, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and broke into a home belonging to resident Akram Omran.
The soldiers violently searched the home for several hours, and interrogated the family.
On Thursday, soldiers kidnapped Ziad Yousef Hasan, 31, a soccer player of the Jericho Crescent Club.
He was moved to the Etzion military base near Bethlehem before he was moved to the Israeli Military Court in Beit El Israeli settlement, the Palestinian News & Info Agency (WAFA) reported.
Jamal Ayesh, head of the club, said Ziad was heading from his town, Qosra, near the northern West Bank city of Nablus, to Jericho to participate in training before a match between his team and the Beit Leqia Club.
