AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) rounded up 11 Palestinians including five children in Al-Khalil at dawn Monday after storming their homes.
Local sources said that IOF soldiers arrested five children in Arub refugee camp two of them 14 years old and three 16 years old.
Journalist Ala’a Al-Teeti said that the soldiers broke into his family home in the refugee camp and took away his 16-year-old brother.
He said that the soldiers terrorized all members of the family and holed them in one room before firing teargas at the house choking 20 members of the family including his pregnant sister.
Teeti said that the soldiers severely beat up his brother Shamekh, 20, and hit his head several times into the wall.
IOF soldiers also rounded up three young men in Edhna village to the west of Al-Khalil after they stormed a number of suburbs in dozens of armored vehicles.
The soldiers arrested a young man in Al-Khalil city and a 35-year-old man in Biet Ummar village to the north of the city after summoning him to Etzion interrogation center.
The soldiers nabbed the night before yesterday an anti-settlement activist in Tal Rumaida in downtown Al-Khalil after he confronted Jewish settlers who tried to assault his family.
