Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — Israeli special forces kidnapped two Palestinian boys from Wadi Hilweh district of Silwan late last night. Murad al-Banna, 18, and an unknown youth were seized by troops last night on the pretext of stone-throwing and involvement in local protests.

Al-Banna had been on his way home from a gathering to mourn the death of a relative in the Al-Bustan region when he was arrested.
Al-Banna’s brother told Silwanic that the allegations of stone-throwing are clearly falsified, given that his hand is currently broken. “How could Murad throw a stone with a broken hand?” he asked. “Moreover, Silwan was quiet last night – no protests!”
Al-Banna is expected to appear before the Magistrates Court today.
