Two 14-year-olds arrested in Bil’in

On Saturday, Occupation forces arrested two young boys in Bil’in.

Mohammed Faisel al Khatib and Amir ‘Aiysi Yasin, both 14 years old, were arrested by soldiers on the pretext that they were too close to the Apartheid Wall.

Last Wednesday, three other boys were arrested in Bil’in, also for being too close to the Wall.

The number of youth being jailed in villages protesting against the Wall has increased considerably over the past several weeks. In addition to Bil’in, residents of al Nabi Saleh have faced mounting arrests, with seven people arrested during the most recent Friday demonstration alone.
