‘A Jerusalem-based human rights group has posted a video showing Israeli soldiers apparently seizing an eight-year-old Palestinian boy and “dragging him from house to house,” reportedly to receive a tip-off on stone-throwers at an nearby settlement.
According to a report by the B’Tselem group, on March 19 the boy’s mother was visiting her parents’ home nearby and asked her son to collect his six-year-old brother from school and bring the younger sibling to the grandparents’ house.
Both boys arrived at about 1:30pm local time, but the elder brother, Sufian, realized he’d lost a toy he’d bought along the way. His mother reportedly told him not to go looking for it, but Sufian sneaked out anyway.
B’Tselem said the boy “was wandering barefoot outside his house in Hebron, looking for a toy he had lost,” when all of a sudden he was surrounded by at least 15 soldiers.’
