Settlers attempt to kidnap toddler in al-Khalil, beat up boy in Jerusalem
A number of extremist Jewish settlers tried on Wednesday evening to kidnap a 3-year-old Palestinian toddler in the southern West Bank city of al-Khalil, according to Palestinian security sources.
The sources added that the settlers attempted to kidnap Mustafa Qafisha from the old city, but the toddler’s mother and her neighbor stopped them and were themselves beaten up by the settlers.
Meanwhile IOF troops arrested on Thursday morning a Palestinian man in the town of Dura to the south of al-Khalil while taking his 4-year-old daughter to the kindergarten.
Meanwhile in Jerusalem, an IOF ordered a boy to stay away from his home, in Sheikh Jarrah suburb, for 15 days after he was beaten by seven extremist Jewish settlers and arrested by the IOF.
Instead of arresting the seven assailants who beat up Ayman al-Ghawi and broke his nose the Israeli occupation police detained and questioned the Palestinian boy and released him ordering him to stay away from his home for 15 days.
