Israeli soldiers abducted, on Friday morning, a Palestinian child in Sielet al-Harithiyya town, west of the northern West Bank city of Jenin.

The child’s father said the soldiers stopped his son, Amjad Ziad Zyoud, 15, on the main Jenin-Haifa Road, and maced him with pepper spray before repeatedly striking and punching him.

The child suffered many cuts and bruises to several parts of his body, before Palestinian medics rushed him to Jenin Governmental Hospital.

It is worth mentioning that the army has recently increased its deployment on main roads leading to various villages and towns in Jenin governorate, in addition to installing many roadblocks.
