OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– A joint Israeli security force of the police and intelligence stormed houses of Jerusalemites in Silwan town, occupied Jerusalem, and took away a number of children.

Palestinian sources said that the policemen and intelligence agents beat up owners of the houses and terrorized women before handcuffing and blindfolding a number of children in Batn Al-Hawa suburb in Silwan and taking them away in military jeeps to Maskobeh detention center.

The sources noted that the children were all less than 17 years old.

The Israeli occupation police had lately intensified raids on Jerusalemite homes especially in Silwan and almost daily abduct more civilians including children. A recent Palestinian report said that the Israeli police force detained 33 Palestinian Jerusalemite children over the past month of October.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, Israeli occupation forces (IOF) apprehended 11 Palestinian citizens in incursions in central and south of the West Bank.

Local sources said that among the detainees was Hamas MP Dr. Mahmoud Al-Ramahi.

The IOF arrests were made in Ramallah and Al-Khalil districts.
