by George Rishmawi - IMEMC & Agencies Report

Israeli troops kidnapped two 15-year-old Palestinian children from the town of Beit Ummar, north of Hebron.

Local sources said that Mohammad Alami and Fadi Abu Fanus were handcuffed and blind-folded as they were taken to the nearby Etzion military base. The children were on their way home after taking part in a funeral of an elderly lady in the town.

Residents attempted to free the two children, however the soldiers refused to release them and used concussion grenades to force the residents away from the site. The mother of one of the two children fainted as a result, and was taken to the medical clinic for treatment.
