Israeli sources reported Monday that dozens of Israeli settlers closed the southern entrance of the Al-Khader village, south of the West Bank city of Bethlehem, and blocked all Palestinian traffic.

The sources said that the settlers gathered at the entrance of Al-Khader, and closed it, after claiming that some Palestinians hurled stones at a settler’s vehicle wounding a settler woman.

Local sources in Al-Khader reported that dozens of settlers and Israeli soldiers gathered near a local gas station, at the southern entrance of the village, before several Israeli military jeeps invaded it; no arrests were reported.

On Monday at dawn, Israeli soldiers kidnapped, on Monday at dawn, 13 Palestinians in different parts of the West Bank, including two children, 12 and 11 years old, who were taken from their homes in occupied East Jerusalem, and a 15-year-old child in Hebron.
