Israeli soldiers abducted, on Thursday evening, a Palestinian child and assaulted his father while they were planting vegetables in their hothouse, in Beit Ummar town, north of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

Local media activist Mohammad Awad stated that the soldiers invaded an agricultural hothouse in the Khallet al-Katla area in Beit Ummar, and abducted a child, identified as Mohammad Walid Sabarna, 15, after assaulting him, causing injuries.

Awad added that the soldiers assaulted the child’s father when trying to defend his son, and fired live rounds near his legs.

The soldiers took the abducted child to a military base in the nearby Karmie Tzur illegal colony, which was built on stolen Palestinian lands.
