On Friday evening, illegal Israeli colonizers, squatting on stolen Palestinian lands, attacked a Palestinian teenage boy in the Al-Mo’arrajat area near Jericho in the northeastern West Bank before Israeli soldiers arrived at the scene and abducted him.

The Jericho office of the Palestinian Prisoners’ Society (PPS) said the colonizers attacked the child, Ali Mohammad Mleihat, 17, causing him to lose consciousness suffering various lacerations and bruises.

The PPS added that Palestinian medics rushed to the scene, but the soldiers refused to allow him to approach the boy, before abducting him and taking him to an unknown destination.
