AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) rounded up three Palestinians in Beit Ummar village, north of al-Khalil, on Tuesday including two children one of them 12 years old.

Mohammed Awad, the spokesman for the village’s popular committee against settlement, said that an IOF force stormed the village at noon and took away 12-year-old Rabee Abu Ayyash.

He said that the father was surprised at the arrest, adding that one of the soldiers carried the child in his arms and took him to the army jeep en route to Etzion camp and told his father that he has to pay 1000 shekels in order to regain his child.

The spokesman said that army troops broke into the home of Ashraf Badawi and took his 15-year-old son Yazan, adding that the soldiers also arrested Ibrahim Mohammed, 40, after forcing their way into his home.

Confrontations were reported between the invading forces and young men in the village during which the soldiers used teargas in abundance leading to breathing problems among many citizens. The soldiers also fired live bullets in the air to disperse the demonstrators.
