DAMASCUS, SYRIA (02:10 PM) – The Israeli regime has abducted over 750 Palestinian citizens during raids on their houses in the West Bank, according to Palestinian sources.

According to the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS), Israeli soldiers abducted seven people early on Thursday after raiding their private residences in the West Bank, in clear violation of international law and of existing peace agreements between Israel and Palestine.

The abductions took place all over the Palestinian area, notably in Nablus, Jenin, Bethlehem and Hebron.
According to Palestinian news outlet the International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC), the names of the abductees are Rabea’ Abdul-Karim Issa, Nawras Fakhreddin Hamdan, Jalal Fahmi Hamdan, Taher Fawzi Qteit, Osama Ezzeddin Najm, Ma’ali Issa Ma’ali and Mohammad Medhat Ayyoub.

During a raid on the Deheishe refugee camp near Bethlehem, Israeli forces opened fire on civilians and wounded at least 10.

Since US president Donald Trump’s decision on December 6 that saw the United States officially recognize Jerusalem as the so-called “capital of Israel”, Israeli troops have kidnapped at least 750 Palestinian civilians in the West Bank, and killed sixteen.

On Wednesday, armed Israelis shot and killed 17-year old Mos’ab Firas Tamimi in the village of Deir Nitham.
