Israeli soldiers abducted, on Saturday at night, two young Palestinian men from the African Neighborhood, in occupied East Jerusalem, after a group of extremist Israeli colonialist settlers attacked them.

Media sources in Jerusalem said the colonialist settlers attacked the two Palestinians, identified as Nasri al-Farrawi and Ali al-Farrawi, while participating in decorating their neighborhood and al-Wad Street leading to the al-Aqsa Mosque, in preparation for the holy Muslim month of Ramadan.

They added that Israeli soldiers arrived at the scene and abducted the two Palestinians instead of removing the assailants.

The two Palestinians were cuffed and blindfolded before being moved to an interrogation facility in the occupied city.
