The day after a group of illegal settlers and soldiers invaded a Palestinian home and threatened to slaughter the children 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 Eqneibi‚Äôs home. Among them was Noam Arnon (◊†◊Ę◊Ě ◊ź◊®◊†◊ē◊ü) — a right-wing settler who referred to¬†Baruch Goldstein (the¬†mass murderer¬†of 29 worshipers in the¬†Ibrahimi Mosque)‚Äďas an¬†‚Äúextraordinary‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúlovely‚ÄĚ person.

Under the protection of heavily-armed Israeli soldiers,¬†Arnon told the Palestinian homeowner,¬†‚ÄúIf you don‚Äôt leave this house, I will slaughter your children, one after the other, in front of you.‚ÄĚ

Responding to settler complaints, a group of soldiers descended on Eqneibi’s 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 Ofer adult prison, outside Ramallah. Locals expect that it may be more than 40 days before the child is released.
