Hebron: IOF kidnap children, hand out demolition threats

PNN/ Hebron/

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) Monday overnight continued a wide campaign of kidnapping youths and children, in addition to handing out demolition orders.

PNN reoporter said that IOF have demolished a facility used for sheep in Thahriyya village that belongs to a citizen, and handed a citizen a demolition threat to the well he owns in Yatta.

IOF then moved to kidnap a number of youths from the Hebron district, including towns of Halhul, Bani-Nu’aim and Si’ir.

Among the arrested were three children from Si’ir village, aged 14.

The three were taken to the Ofer military court after they received notices to go to the Israeli intelligence on Sunday. 

IOF did not give any reasons for the kidnap, and the number of detainees is still unidentified.

On a related matter, clashes erupted today in the yards of Al-Aqsa mosque, after a group of settlers broke into it, and Palestinian worshipers were prevented from entering it by flying checkpoints.

The Israeli police assaulted a number of Al-Aqsa guards and children in light of the clashes.

On Sunday, a number of extremist settlers raised Israeli flags outside the gates of occupied East Jerusalem’s flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque, according to the mosque’s Palestinian director.
