A Palestinian journalist has been kidnapped, on Wednesday at dawn, after dozens of Israeli soldiers stored her home in Um ash-Sharayet area, in al-Biereh town, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

Local sources said dozens of soldiers surrounded the residential building where Sheikh Jamal Tawil resides, before invading it and kidnapping his daughter, Boshra, 24 years of age.

Sheikh Tawil is one of the political leaders of the Hamas movement in the area.

His daughter is the spokesperson of the "Aneen Al-Qaid Media" Network, local news agency specialized in covering news about the Palestinian detainees, and political prisoners.

Boshra has been repeatedly kidnapped, and imprisoned, by Israel.

Her news agency, Aneen Al-Qaid, issued a statement denouncing the arrest, and the ongoing Israeli violations against Palestinian journalists, and the Palestinian people.

The invasion led to clashes between the soldiers and dozens of local youths who threw stones and empty bottles at them.

The soldiers also prevented local journalists from entering the area to document the attack, and assaulted journalists and camerapersons working for the Roya Jordanian News Agency.

On Tuesday evening, dozens of residents have been treated for the effects of teargas inhalation after Israeli soldiers invaded Qarawat Bani Hassan village, west of the central West bank district of Salfit.

Eyewitnesses said dozens of soldiers invaded the village, and surrounded a local mosque as the Palestinians were leaving it following evening prayers.

The soldiers then fired gas bombs, and concussion grenades, at the worshipers and a number of homes.

Medical sources said dozens of residents, including children, suffered the effects of tear gas inhalation, and received treatment by local medics.
