The Israeli army detained two children on Monday, after raiding and ransacking their family homes near the occupied West Bank city of Jericho, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Local sources told WAFA that Israeli soldiers broke into the Treifat Bedouin community in the al-Diyouk al-Fouqa village.

They arrested Mustafa Rashaydeh, 12, and Adnan Rashaydeh, 17, after breaking into their family homes and interrogating their parents. Israeli forces reportedly spread havoc and destruction in their homes.

According to the Prisoner Support and Human Rights Organization Addameer, 150 children are currently detained in Israeli prisons.

  1. Every single incident day by day is provocation by Israelis. These inhumane killings in the belief of religion! These are murders – no other word. PROVOCATION by entering the mosque whilst the US stands by and says it’s the other way around! We Palestinians have no help not even from Saudi.This was a problem created by Britain they need to resolve it with our requirements too. Let’s create a ‘Palestinians Matter Too’ site with mass media and joined with all supporters.
