Many Israeli army vehicles invaded, Wednesday dawn, the village of Kufur Qaddoum, east of the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, and abducted four children from their homes.

The Popular Committee in Kufur Qaddoum said the soldiers invaded and violently searched several homes, causing damage, before abducting the four children.

It added that hundreds of soldiers surrounded and invaded the village and said, “It seems Israel needs hundreds of soldiers to abduct less than a handful of children.”

The Palestinians have been holding weekly processions for the last eighteen years, demanding the army to reopen the village’s main road the soldiers blockaded to allow easy access to the illegal colonizers driving to and from Kedumim illegal colony, built on stolen Palestinian lands.

The abducted Palestinian children are:

  1. Khaled Morad Eshteiwi, 16.
  2. Tareq Hikmat Eshteiwi, 17.
  3. Awad Mansour Obeid, 17.
  4. Majdi Majed Jom’a, 17.
