Israeli soldiers kidnapped on Friday morning a Palestinian youth in the southern West Bank city of Hebron after claiming that he carried a sharp tool.Israeli sources reported that the so-called Border Guard policemen arrested the 17-year old youth near the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron.

He was moved cuffed and blindfolded before he was transferred to an interrogation facility.

The claim is similar to several previous incidents in which Palestinians were kidnapped by Israeli forces under the claim of carrying sharp tools.
