529 Palestinians Kidnapped by Israeli
Occupation Forces in Ten Days
June 24, 2015
Media use of the word "arrest" is inaccurate when
it comes to the acts of Israeli occupation soldiers taking Palestinians
by force from their homes to Israeli detention centers.
Israeli occupation soldiers are operating illegally outside the borders
of their country and have no jurisdiction over the Palestinians living
in the West Bank. Therefore, a more accurate term to describe their acts
is "kidnapping" or "abduction."

illegal Israeli Jewish settler

Two Palestinian young men suffered from severe suffocation and minor
paralysis last night when an atypical smoke grenade thrown by an illegal
extremist Israeli Jewish settler fell inside their car near Deir Ibzi
village, west of Ramallah.
Local sources said an Israeli settler
from Talmon settlement chased a Palestinian passenger vehicle traveling
on the public road that leads to towns and villages of west Ramallah.

passengers to suffer from severe suffocation and made their limbs feel
numb for a while.
The injured young men rushed to Israeli
soldiers posted at a nearby military checkpoint and reported what
happened to them, but the soldiers ignored their complaint and forced
them to leave the area.
In an earlier incident yesterday, eight
Palestinian workmen miraculously survived death after armed Jewish
settlers opened fire at them in an area to the north of Ramallah.

the settlers have attacked them, and even identified the vehicle, as it
was parked nearby the roadblock.

said that Israeli forces have detained over 8,000 children since 2000.
Since 2008, there have been at least 170 Palestinian children in Israeli
detention at any given time.
Almost more alarming than the fact
that 1,405 Palestinian children have been killed by Israeli soldiers or
settlers since 2000 is the climate of impunity that makes such violence
possible, according to the report.
The report shed light the
devastating impact on Palestinian children of growing up near
increasingly violent Israeli settlements and Israeli military outposts.

details the experiences of children and their families living in
villages and towns hemmed in by expanding and often violent settler
