Israeli soldiers have kidnapped 100 Palestinians, including youth, in the West Bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron) and surrounding villages and towns in June.
A report by the Palestinian Prisoners Society (PPS), al-Khalil branch, revealed on Thursday that the kidnapped residents include patients, wounded residents and former detainees.
It explained how the soldiers broke into the victims’ homes, violently dragged them out and tortured them in front of their families before taking them away to undisclosed locations.
The soldiers also tossed up their homes, seizing computers, cell phones and other personal items, causing excessive damage to their properties, the group said.
Among the kidnapped were 19 students, among them 11 school-going children, who were pressured to collaborate with the Israeli security in return for their release, the PPS report added.
It also said that Israel is continuing with its illegal torture practices and is depriving the detainees of their basic rights, such as medical care and visiting relatives.
