The Israeli army arrested, on Monday afternoon, three students
returning from their school in Al Khader village, south of the West Bank city
of Bethlehem.

Troops stopped the students after school and gathered them in the
soccer field in the village. Soldiers searched the students and
spot-interrogated them. Hamdi Salah 17, Rami Mossa,17, and Mohamed Salah,16, were
arrested and taken to an unknown destination, eyewitnesses reported.

Israeli solders posted on the military checkpoint in the village are
escalating their aggression against the school students by repeatedly
shooting at them, chasing them and firing tear gas and rubber coated
bullets at them, local sources reported.
