IMEMC - In two separate invasions Tuesday night, Israeli forces attacked the east Jerusalem town of Abu Dis, and the southern West Bank city of Hebron, to search for men listed on the army's 'Wanted' list.

Palestinians have long criticized the 'Wanted' list used by the military to round up suspects, saying that informants are the main source of information for who gets on the list, and the informants are extremely unreliable and prone to corruption and revenge.

Many Palestinians who are listed as 'Wanted' have never had any affiliation with any armed group, but may have been listed by an informant because of a personal or family grudge.

According to local sources, Israeli troops moved into the Palestinian town of Abu Dis, and seized two Palestinian men from their homes in the early morning hours of Wednesday.

In a separate invasion, Israeli troops moved into the town of Hebron, in the southern West Bank, and abducted one man from his home.

None of the detainees have been identified at this time.
