[Tuesday at Dawn, February 25, 2014] Local sources have reported that several Israeli military jeeps invaded Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, and kidnapped a nonviolent activist against Israel’s illegal Settlements and the Annexation Wall.

Mohammad Awad, head of the Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements, said that dozens of soldiers invaded the home of Yousef Abdul-Hamid Abu Mariyya, 40, in Khallit al-Ein neighborhood, and kidnapped him after violently searching his property.

Awad added that the soldiers invaded the home of Abu Mariyya, using a machine that can silently open doors without waking the family up, and attacked Abu Mariyya in his bed before kidnapping him.

The soldiers left the town later on, and took the kidnapped Palestinian to an unknown destination.

Also on Tuesday at dawn, soldiers invaded the northern West Bank city of Nablus, kidnapping a Palestinian lawyer and a Palestinian journalist, and taking them to an unknown destination.
