IOF soldiers torture two Palestinian children, try to maim one of them
Three IOF soldiers were recently involved in a violent assault on two Palestinian children who were less than 16 years old in an area near Nablus in the West Bank, a Hebrew website revealed on Saturday.
The website of the Yediot Ahronot said that the soldiers kicked and beat the two kids and even tried to maim one of them when they put a heater near to his face. The paper would not elaborate, however, on the physical or psychological results of such an assault on the two children.
The paper noted that members of the Kfir army unit had been notorious for a number of similar acts against Palestinian civilians in recent weeks.
The Nafha society defending prisoners and human rights charged that the assault points to only a fraction of what the IOF soldiers are really doing against Palestinian prisoners, especially children.
The society accused the IOA of “legalizing torture” while telling the media of its concern with the “reputation of the Israeli army”.
