The day after a group of illegal settlers and soldiers invaded a Palestinian home andĀ threatened to slaughter the childrenĀ in front of them, one of the children was taken into custody by Israeli police.
On Saturday, a group of settlers climbed down onto the rooftop of Emad Eqneibiās home. Among them was Noam Arnon (× ×¢× ××Ø× ××) — a right-wing settler who referred toĀ Baruch Goldstein (theĀ mass murdererĀ of 29 worshipers in theĀ Ibrahimi Mosque)āas anĀ āextraordinaryā and ālovelyā person.
Under the protection of heavily-armed Israeli soldiers,Ā Arnon told the Palestinian homeowner,Ā āIf you donāt leave this house, I will slaughter your children, one after the other, in front of you.ā
Responding to settler complaints, a group of soldiers descended on Eqneibiās house, the following day, and abducted his 14-year-old son, Amer Eqneibi. Video was captured as the soldiers were taking the child away:
Amer is currently being held in OferĀ adult prison, outside Ramallah. Locals expect that it may be more than 40 days before the child is released.
