Al-KHALIL, A 15-year-old boy was kidnapped at dawn Wednesday by Israeli troops in Al-Khalil city at the pretext of throwing stones at military patrols, while on the same day an Israeli court ordered the release of five settlers who carried out a terrorist attack on a mosque in Yasuf village in Nablus.

Palestinian eyewitnesses said that the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) raided the home of a child called Basil Al-Darabie and took him in chains and blindfolded to an unknown destination.

They added that the IOF troops accused the boy of throwing stones at Israeli military vehicles near his house.

Meanwhile, an Israeli court issued a decision to release five settlers from Yitzhar settlement in Nablus who were arrested by the Israeli police after they carried out a bombing attack on a mosque in the village of Yasuf.

Yesh Din organization said on Wednesday that the release of those settlers would encourage others to wage more attacks on Palestinians and called for providing the Palestinians with protection from settlers’ assaults.

In another incident, the Israeli police decided on Tuesday to prevent two Palestinian young men called Mahmoud Al-Hajajera and Bilal Zidan from entering the Aqsa Mosque and the Old City of occupied Jerusalem for two weeks.

The Israeli police accused the young men of taking pictures using their cell phones of a group of tourists who were escorted by policemen at the Aqsa Mosque.

They claimed that the young men had intentions to post these pictures on the Internet in order to portray that there were forces of Israeli police inside the holy Mosque, the thing which would incite the Arabs and Muslims against Israel.   Source
