On Tuesday at dawn, Israeli soldiers invaded Silwan town in occupied East Jerusalem, broke into the house of Mofeed Mansour and kidnapped his eight year old child. Fakhri Abu Thiab, member of the Committee for Defending Silwan, slammed the kidnapping of the child, stating that the attack violates international law regarding the basic rights of children as well as Israeli laws.

The army and the police surrounded the house of the child and took him away from his parents, terrorizing the child and his whole family.

“Under what law, what right, can a child be kidnapped like this?” Abu Thiab asked. “This proves that the Israeli police reached a dangerous level of immorality and disregard for the internationally guaranteed rights of the children.’
