Israeli soldiers abducted, on Wednesday afternoon, a Palestinian child in the al-‘Isawiya town, in occupied East Jerusalem in the West Bank, as he was walking back home from school.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers abducted Mohammad Ali Dirbas, 16, after stopping him while heading back home from school, and took him to an unknown destination.

The town has been subject to ongoing violations, including the abduction of many Palestinians, the daily invasions and violent searches of homes, in addition to excessively high fines and fees imposed on the residents.

Also on Wednesday, the soldiers killed a Palestinian woman after she reportedly tried to stab them near Qalandia Terminal, north of occupied Jerusalem.

On Tuesday evening and Wednesday at dawn, the soldiers abducted four Palestinians, including two children, from Silwan town in occupied East Jerusalem, and Silwad town, east of the central West Bank city of Ramallah. The soldiers also searched homes in Hebron, in southern West Bank.
