Al-Quds (Jerusalem), 19 Muharram 1436/12 November 2014 (MINA) – Zidani family from Silwan neighborhood South the old city of Jerusalem, was shocked to hear the order of Israeli forces arresting their 2-year-old son, Hamza Zidani.
The family denied the order, when an Israeli occupation intelligence officer stormed into their house, kidnapped another son of the Family, Mohammad, and stole three computers.
Later, Israeli intelligence told the family that their youngest son, Hamza, was also ordered for kidnap, while the family rejected the order, Palestine News Network (PNN) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting, Wednesday.
According to Defence for Children International Palestine, the number of Palestinian children in Israeli prisons reached 230 during the year of 2014, and children between the ages of 12-15 years reached about 36.
Israel has kidnapped Palestinian adults and minors, either for throwing stones, or for no charge at all.
Each year, occupation tightens the screws on Palestinians, and exerts pressure on them to leave their homes, especially in Silwan area in Jerusalem, to extend the building of Israeli settlements in the area.
The kidnap campaigns are getting wider and including two-year-olds, to exert pressure on Palestinian families.(T/P008/R03)
