Local sources reported that dozens of Israeli policemen and security officers invaded the town after the undercover forces infiltrated into it, and harassed several residents.

The sources added that dozens of youths hurled stones at the invading soldiers, while undercover officers also ambushed several youths and kidnapped some of them.

All kidnapped youths and children were placed in armored vehicles and were taken to undisclosed destinations.

Israeli soldiers and policemen carry out repeated attacks against the Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank, especially in occupied East Jerusalem.

Earlier on Tuesday morning, Israeli soldiers invaded Qalqilia city in the northern part of the West Bank, and several surrounding villages, and kidnapped seven residents.


Below a video of July 2011, captured on camera, the abduction of a football playing child by Israeli undercover forces, at broad daylight:

One of the children in the video, 13-year-old Islam Jaber, was taken to a graveyard and beaten up, the PA said, adding that he suffered severe anxiety attacks since the incident.

The PA said Israel attempted to bypass humanitarian law by applying “military orders” against Palestinians. The government urged the UN to implement resolution 1998 which protects the right of children in conflict.

The resolution notes that “certain parties persist in committing violations and abuses against children and expresses its readiness to adopt targeted and graduated measures against persistent perpetrators.”

The PA urged the UN and non-governmental organizations to take legal action and end Israel’s impunity, noting that Israel had been violating and abusing Palestinian children “for decades now.”
