Israeli soldiers invaded, on Wednesday morning, a Palestinian medical center run by the Health Work Committee, near the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank, and abducted a child.
The Health Work Committee said the soldiers broke into their center, in the southern area of Hebron city, and abducted the child, only thirteen years of age, before taking him to an unknown destination.
They added that the soldiers used excessive force against the patients, and the workers, in the medical center.
The Committee stated that such invasions are serious violations of all related international laws and treaties, including the Fourth Geneva Convention, which protect all medical centers and clinics.
It voiced an urgent appeal to all legal and human rights groups around the world to intervene, and provide the needed protection to the Palestinian people, their homes, lands and institutions, especially medical centers that are supposed to be protected at all costs from these invasions.
It is worth mentioning that the soldiers frequently place iron gates at the main entrance of the medical center and prevent the Palestinians from entering it.
Furthermore, the soldiers abducted a young Palestinian man from Qalqilia, and two others in Qabatia town, south of Jenin, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.
The soldiers also abducted four Palestinians in the northern West Bank city of Nablus, and one in Hebron, in southern West Bank.
Also at dawn, the soldiers abducted eight Palestinians, including children, in Jerusalem and Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.
On Wednesday morning, a Palestinian teen, identified as Ahmad Mohammad Abed-Rabbo al-Hilo, 19, died from serious wounds he suffered last Friday, when Israeli soldiers opened fire at Palestinian protesters east of the al-Boreij refugee camp, in central Gaza.
