A Palestinian civilian and his seven sons, along with his daughter-in-law, were kidnapped on Saturday by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) from the southern West Bank province of al-Khalil.
An Israeli army patrol and police troops, escorted by sniffer dogs and military jeeps, rolled into al-Samou’s western entrance of al-Simia, in southern al-Khalil, and wreaked havoc on civilian homes.
The assault culminated in the abduction of the Palestinian civilian Mohamed Moussa Bheis and his seven sons Moussa, Imad, Rami, Jihad, Rafat, Ali, and Raed.
The wife of one of the aforementioned sons was also kidnapped by the Israeli soldiers in the process.
The nine arrestees were all dragged to an unidentified destination.
The attack makes part of a collective punishment policy pursued by the Israeli occupation army against Palestinian anti-occupation protesters and their families.
