The source, who didn’t want to be identified, told Albawaba.com that “the report on the Israeli radio is an attempt by [Israeli Prime Minister Ehud] Barak’s government to calm down the Israeli public opinion.”
A source told Albawaba.com early Wednesday that 10 Palestinians were missing in Ramallah, at least five of them were arrested by the Shin Beth security service, and the others were hiding.
The AFP has said Israel has seized eight Palestinians suspected of involvement in the lynching of the two soldiers, quoting military sources said Wednesday.
The eight, all civilians, were arrested during a joint operation by the Shin Beth domestic intelligence service and special forces of the Israeli army, and they were taken to Israel, the sources told the agency, without giving further details or naming the “arrested.”
The PNA source, however, asserted that “none has disappeared either from areas A [with Palestinian security and administrative control] or areas B,” where Israel holds security control.
