The undercover forces infiltrated into the town during clashes between Israeli soldiers and local youths; they chased some youths and children in the streets of the town before kidnapping Mohammad Ali Dirbas, 6, who was heading to a neighborhood shop, and took him to a local police station.

The army then kept the child in detention for four hours, and interrogated him in an attempt to intimate him in order to give them names of youths who hurled stones at the soldiers.

His grandfather told Maan that he was allowed to take his grandson back home after four hours, and stated that he will be taking him to a local hospital for health checkup.

Maan reporter spoke to the child after he was released, and the child said; “The Police tried to terrify me, but they can’t scare me, they must leave our land”.

Local sources reported that Israeli soldiers and undercover forces invaded the town and tried to kidnap a number of youths and children, and also fired gas bombs and concussion grenades at random; several residents suffocated after inhaling gas, and were treated by field medics.

In related news, soldiers kidnapped a young Palestinian woman in Kufr Qaddoum, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia.

Maha Ghazi Barham was returning back home after visiting her brother, who is imprisoned by Israel, and took her to an unknown location. Barham was stopped at the northern roadblock in Qalqilia; her family demanded human rights groups to intervene in order to locate their detained daughter, and ensure her release.
