About 30 IDF jeeps surrounded a building in Ramallah on Wednesday. It was not immediately clear why the jeeps were in Ramallah, or whether their presence was connected to the disappearance of an Israeli settler. A Palestinian group with links to the ruling Hamas party has claimed to have taken the missing settler hostage. Unconfirmed reports said that the building is the headquarters of Fatah in the West Bank, and that the troops were searching for the missing Eliyahu Asheri.
