IMEMC: Seven Palestinians, including three minors, were abducted by Israeli forces from the Hebron and Bethlehem districts on Wednesday, according to reports by local and security sources.
Soldiers stormed Al-Fawwar refugee camp, to the south of Hebron City, today, according to WAFA.

One 21-year-old Palestinian was taken captive, along with three 17-year-olds, after forces raided and ransacked their homes.

Forces also raided Bani Na‘im, to the east of the city, and Hahul, to the north, where they kidnapped two Palestinians after breaking into their homes, according to reports by Amjad Al-Najjar, Director of the Palestinian Prisoners Society.

Furthermore, in the Bethlehem district, Israeli troops stormed Aida refugee camp to the north of the city, where they abducted a 23-year-old Palestinian, following a similar raid on his home.

Bethlehem and Hebron are a part of the Palestinian territories which have been illegally occupied by Israel since 1967.

Over 550,000 Israelis now live in Jewish-only settlements across the region, including occupied East Jerusalem, around and between Palestinian villages.
