Two young boys arrested in Beit Sira

By Anna Svensson

Today, in the village of Beit Sira, Israeli occupation forces stopped a group of school children between the ages of 8 to 16 walking home from school. The soldiers had with them photos that where taken at the demonstrations against the apartheid-wall held in the village. After checking all the students, two were then supposedly identified from the pictures, 13 year old Muhammad Dib Nimer Khatab and 14 year old Ziad Muhammad Kamel Khatab. Last Friday Ziad was injured by rubber coated steel bullets from Israeli soldiers. The two young boys are now detained at the Ofer military detention centre.
