The International Solidarity Institution for Human Rights reported 
that Israeli soldiers have been recently invading Palestinians area, 
breaking into homes at night and kidnapping Palestinian youths, in 
order to train new army recruits.

The Institution stated in a press release on Sunday that "Israeli 
soldiers invaded recently several towns, villages and refugee camps 
in the occupied West Bank, kidnapped dozens of ordinary civilians, 
took them to military bases, and release them later on, as part of a 
new field training program for the soldiers".

It added that, as part of this training, eight Palestinians were 
kidnapped a few days ago in Kafr Qaleel village, east of the northern 
West Bank city of Nablus, and a similar number of residents in Sorra 
village, west of Nablus, and released them after the training was concluded.

The soldiers caused excessive damage to the homes of the kidnapped 
residents, as this "training" included conducting home invasions and 
searches, and conducted these attacked after midnight and early dawn hours.

The Institution further stated that this practice "turns the 
Palestinian homes into training fields and a lab to train Israeli 
military officers and recruits on invasion and search techniques, in 
addition to providing the soldiers with interrogation skills by 
practicing on innocent civilians".
