Israeli soldiers invaded dozens of communities in the occupied West Bank, and in occupied East Jerusalem, and kidnapped 22 Palestinians, including ten children.Palestinian sources in occupied Jerusalem said dozens of soldiers, police and security officers invaded, overnight, dozens of homes in different parts of the city, and kidnapped 22 Palestinians, including 10 children.
Six of the kidnapped children are only 12 years of age.
The police alleges the kidnapped “participated in clashes with the army and the police in recent days.”
The abductions mainly took place in ath-Thoury, Shu’fat, and Silwan town, south of the al-Aqsa Mosque.
An Israeli police source claimed the kidnapped threw stones and Molotov cocktails, at the army, and at the light rail passing through Silwan and ath-Thoury. It added that the kidnapped Palestinians would be remanded under interrogation.
Palestinian towns and communities in occupied Jerusalem have been witnessing frequent clashes with the occupying army and police since two months after fanatic Israeli settlers kidnapped Mohammad Abu Khdeir, 16, tortured and burned him to death.
Two weeks ago, the Israeli police announced it had taken more than 600 Palestinians from occupied Jerusalem in two months.
Also on Tuesday, soldiers invaded dozens of Palestinian communities in different parts of the occupied West Bank, kidnapping ten persons.
All of the kidnapped were taken to a number of Israeli military interrogation centers.
Israeli soldiers conduct daily invasions, assaults and arrests in different parts of the occupied West Bank, including in and around occupied East Jerusalem.
The Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) recently reported that the number of Palestinians held by Israel is not more than 700, including dozens of women and children, in addition to elected legislators and officials.
