On Friday 27th April, a number of settlers in Ramat Gilad settlement summoned two Palestinians from Amatin village, East of Qalqiliyah, who were kidnapped while herding sheep in the East of the village, near the settlement.
Eyewitnesses said that armed settlers attacked Issam Hassan Khalil, 28, and Mohammad Mahmoud Barry, 13, and handcuffed them before they kidnapped and summoned them to the Israeli soldiers, where they transferred them to an unknown location for further interrogation.
Palestinians in the village are been subjected to settlers' attacks daily, especially attacks on shepherds.
The Israeli public broadcast reported that the Israeli army closed Za'tara checkpoint, south of Nablus, that separates north of the West Bank from the center, and detained Palestinians' vehicles, which lead to significant delays in their travels.
