The Youth Coalition Against Settlements stated that a number of extremist Israeli settlers were hitting and kicking the child, Ahmad Hisham Al-Azza, and when his sister, Sondos, defended him, Israeli soldiers, who were at the scene, kidnapped her and her brother and took them to an unknown destination.

In related news, Israeli soldiers invaded, on Tuesday at night, Kufr Qaddoum village, near the northern West Bank city of Qalqilia, and kidnapped several local nonviolent peace activists.

The residents were cuffed and blindfolded, and as the soldiers were taking them to the military jeeps, some soldiers hurled gas bombs towards a cameraman who was filing the invasion, apparently from a rooftop.

Kufr Qaddoum is one of several Palestinian villages that are active in weekly nonviolent protests against the illegal Israeli Annexation Wall and Israel’s illegal settlements.
