Israeli soldiers kidnapped, on Thursday evening, four children in Ash-Shuhada’ Street, in the center of Hebron city, and the nearby Beit Ummar town, in the southern part of the West Bank, and released two of them later on, but refused to release the remaining two. The Palestinian District Coordination Office (DCO) in Hebron stated that two children who were released have been identified as Sanad Da’na 13, and Nimir Idrees, 13, were both released and were handed to the DCO.

The DCO added that the army is still holding captive two children from Beit Ummar and is refusing to release them despite the fact of an understanding between the DCO and the army to release any child who gets kidnapped by the soldiers.
