Israeli soldiers kidnapped, Wednesday, five Palestinian children, in Ni’lin town west of the central West Bank city of Ramallah, after assaulting them.

Media sources in Ni’lin said the soldiers violently attacked the five children, causing various cuts and bruises, before cuffing and blindfolding them, and took them to military base in Hashmonim illegal colony, built on the villagers’ lands.

The sources added that the soldiers later released one of the kidnapped children, and kept the other four under interrogation, without any legal representation.
