ISRAELI ARMY BLINDFOLDS AND DETAINS CHILDREN

[Ramallah] This afternoon Israeli soldiers outside Al-Amaari refugee camp detained three boys aged between 10 and 13. The boys were handcuffed and blindfolded and taken into a house already occupied by the IDF.

Internationals, including US citizens, are on the scene with the boys’ mothers, but their pleas for information on the children’s welfare have as yet been denied. No reason has been given for the boys’ detention.
