Israeli forces, on Sunday, kidnapped two Palestinian teenagers from Beit Ummar, to the north of Hebron, according to reports by a local activist.
Mohammad Awad, Spokesperson of the anti-settlement Popular Committee in Beit Ummar, told WAFA Palestinian News & Info Agency that forces arrested two 16-year-old Palestinians while they were picking grape leaves in vineyards adjacent to the settlement of ‘Carmi Tzur’, built illegally on the town’s land.
The youngsters were taken to an unknown destination.
Just the previous day, dozens of Palestinians in the Hebron region suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation as Israeli forces suppressed a weekly protest that was organized in solidarity with hunger-striking Palestinian prisoners.
