Israeli Soldiers Arrest Five Palestinian Children

Israeli soldiers detain five Palestinian children in the West Bank city of Hebron (al-Khalil) after clashes break out.

The soldiers claim that the children were pelting stones at a building inside the Beit Romano settlement on Thursday during clashes in the West Bank city of al-Khalil.

But the parents of the arrested children complain that "the children were playing football in front of their house when suddenly the soldiers came and arrested them."

"They say they have pictures of them throwing stones. The army are liars [sic]," one al-Khalil resident was quoted by Reuters as saying. The soldiers have detained the children at a military watch tower.

After two consecutive days of protests in Jerusalem (al-Quds) and across the Palestinian territories, Israeli soldiers fired anti-riot ammunition at the demonstrators.

The Palestinians were protesting at Israel plans to build 1,600 settlements in the East Jerusalem (al-Quds).
