OCCUPIED JERUSALEM (IAP News): Human rights activists operating in the
Occupied Territories of the West Bank have expressed profound anxiety
over the repeated abduction of Palestinian children by Israeli soldiers
and agents of the Shin Beth. 

One human rights worker in the Hebron area described Israeli behavior as
being "wicked." 

"What they are doing shows that the Israeli army observes no red lines,
it is no holds barred." 

On Sunday, the Palestinian newspaper "al Hayatul Jadida" reported that
Israeli security agents abducted an 11-year-old child from the village
of Jalqamos, near Jenin, and took him to a nearby settlement where the
child was subjected to various forms of terrorization. 

The paper quoted the child, identified as Muhammed Abdullah al Haj, as
saying that a civilian car bearing Israeli license plates stopped
suddenly next to him and the driver asked him to guide them to a
martyr's home nearby. 

However, when the child got into the car, he was dumbfounded and handed
over to an Israeli army patrol three kilometers away. 

The army jeep reportedly took the thoroughly terrified child to a nearby
Jewish settlement (the Jenim settlement), where the soldiers threatened
to let police dogs attack and devour him if he didn't inform them on the
whereabouts of some village youths. 

The child said the soldiers also asked him about the number of policemen
in his village and who amongst them carried firearms. 

Several hours later, the jeep reportedly took the child and dropped him
off three kilometers away from the village.
