The Committee said that eight military vehicles and three troop carriers invaded Beit Ummar through its main road, and through Yasser Arafat Road, west of the town, and headed to the center of the town, Al-Bayada and Aseeda neighborhoods.
Soldiers then broke into several homes and searched them before kidnapping Ali Sa’id Sabarna, 17, Ali Ahmad Sabarna, 16, and Jihad Nasser Ikhlayyil, 16, the Palestine News Network (PNN) has reported.
