An Israeli police force abducted on Thursday three Palestinian youths in the occupied West Bank city of East Jerusalem, local sources reported.

Witnesses in the Altour neighborhood of East Jerusalem told media outlets that an Israeli police force chased a Palestinian-owned vehicle, until they stopped it. A few moments later, the police forced the driver out of his car, handcuffed, assaulted and abducted him, taking him to an unknown location.

During the incident, witnesses added, a group of Palestinian youths in the area, quarrelled with the police force, to which the police responded by attacking two of the youth with a taser (electric-shock weapon) and then abducting them as well.

Israeli police in occupied East Jerusalem frequently stop and inspect Palestinian residents’ ID’s and vehicles.
