Israeli Military Attacks Nonviolent Protest in Southern West Bank Village and Arrests 13 Boys From Village Playground
Thirteen Palestinian boys, all between the ages of 12 and 15, were arrested by Israeli Forces from a playground in the village of Beit Ommar, in the southern West Bank. The Israeli soldiers, supported by a unit of special forces, attacked the children with sound bombs, tear gas, and rubber bullets before making the arrests.
When several mothers of the children ran to their defense, they were beaten by soldiers and prevented from reaching the area. The families of the children still do not know where they are being held.'
