Israeli soldiers abducted, on Sunday evening, two Palestinian children and injured two others, in Silwan town, south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, in occupied East Jerusalem.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan (Silwanic) has reported that Israeli soldiers invaded Batn al-Hawa neighborhood in Silwan, before storming and ransacking many homes.

Silwanic added that the soldiers also fired several flares, gas bombs and concussion grenades at the Palestinians, wounding Yousef Sha’er and Islam Rajabi, with fragments of concussion grenades.

The soldiers also abducted Hamza Zoheir Rajabi, 16, and Mohammad Fayez Rajabi, 16, before taking them to the police station in Salaheddin Street, in Jerusalem.

Silwanic said the soldiers assaulted Hamza, causing various cuts and bruises, before abducting him.

In incidents took place after an Israeli female settler, illegally living in a colony in Silwan, slapped Hamza in his face while he was sitting, and started hurling insults against him and his friends.

Armed settlement guards and Israeli soldiers then assaulted the children, and abducted Hamza and Mohammad, before moving them into their station at the illegal colony, in Batn al-Hawa neighborhood, and later to the police center, in Salaheddin Street.
