Israeli forces, Sunday, kidnapped 11 Palestinians, including a minor, in the West Bank districts of Nablus and Bethlehem, according to reports by local and security sources.

n the Nablus region, the Israeli army raided the village of Asira al-Qibliya, where they abducted eight people after breaking into and searching their homes, damaging their content.

A further raid was conducted on the nearby Askar refugee camp, where forces kidnapped a 21-year-old resident.

In Bethlehem, Israeli soldiers stormed the village of al-Khader and took 13-year-old Ahmad Salah as he was preparing to leave his school.

Sources told WAFA Palestinian News & Info Agency that forces arrested a 13-year-old student while he was leaving his school, provoking clashes with locals. Israeli soldiers fired stun grenades and tear gas canisters towards residents, causing a number of cases of suffocation among them.

This morning, the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) reports that, in al-Khalil (Hebron), Israeli forces detained two young Palestinian boys, 10-year-old Fares Abu Senene and 7-year-old Haitham Asrawi for one hour.

An ISM activist who was present stated: “When we arrived it was clear the children were really young, far too young to be detained or arrested by heavily armed soldiers. We spoke to several people who saw what happened and they explained there had been an altercation with some settlers from the nearby illegal settlements. It seemed like settlers attacked the children, who tried to fight back, and were then held by the Israeli military. After an hour the children were let go. This incident is just another example of the injustice that Palestinians face from the occupation in al-Khalil.”

Soldiers also raided al-Izza refugee camp, where they kidnapped one youth, age 22, after raiding and searching his home.
