Israeli soldiers detained, on Saturday evening, six Palestinian teens and one adult, from the al-‘Arqa village, west of the northern West Bank city of Jenin. The Palestinian District Coordination Office (DCO) managed to secure their release.The DCO said Israeli soldiers kidnapped ‘Orwa Mohammad Hammad, 17, Tareq Mohammad Wakid, 16, Baha’ Mohammad Yahia, 17, Qoteiba Ehad Hammad, 17, Ahmad ‘Adnan Saleh, 17, Mohammad Ahmad Zeid, 13, and Ahmad Kamal Yahia, 35.
The Seven Palestinians were taken prisoners near a section of the Israeli Annexation Wall, west of Jenin.
Head of the DCO Office in Jenin and Tubas, Lieutenant Mojahed Abu Dayya, said his office contacted the Israeli DCO and insisted on the release of the seven Palestinians, especially since the area witnessed no clashes or confrontation with the army during, and prior to, the time of abduction.
Abu Dayya called on the Palestinians to instantly inform DCO offices of similar incidents, so that they can act on releasing them before the army moves the kidnapped Palestinians to interrogation centers.
