Israeli soldiers abducted, Monday, two Palestinian children from Qaryout village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and moved them to Shilo nearby illegal colony, built on Palestinian lands.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors Israel’s colonialist activities in northern West Bank, said the children have been identified as ‘Amir Sa’ada, 12, and Mohammad Atallah ‘Azem, 13.

He added that the two children were walking in the al-‘Ein area, south of Qaryout when the soldiers abducted them and took them to Shilo.

The official denounced the abduction of the two children, and stated that moving them to a colony is a very serious violation, especially amidst the escalating assaults by the colonists, and seemingly grants them official security tasks in the Palestinian territories that will pose a real threat to the lives and the freedom of movement of citizens.
