JENIN (Ma'an) -- Israeli police on Sunday detained two young girls and their grandmother after denying them permission to visit the children's jailed father, the Palestinian prisoners society said.

Hala Khanfar, 7, and Jana Khanfar, 8, were detained with their grandmother while trying to visit their father Rami Khanfar in Israel's Negev prison, their uncle told the society.

The children, from Nablus in the northern West Bank, were held until 1 a.m. Monday, when they were handed to Palestinian security officials in the southern city of Hebron. They spent the night in Hebron at the home of the head of a local committee for prisoners' families.

Their grandmother remains in Israeli custody, a Ma'an reporter said.

The governor of Hebron, Kamil Hmeid, strongly denounced the arrests, calling on local and international organizations to document Israeli violations against children.

Rami Khanfar is serving a 15-year sentence in Israeli jail.

This detention story of children is hard to believe, and likely distorted at the very least, so as to "demonize" Israel, so I suggest also reading another story*, so as to see a more balanced reality between the two peoples:
- "An IDF medical team on Sunday saved the life of a 13-year-old Palestinian Authority dialysis patient whose life was in danger due to the worsening of his condition".

#2 - what's your point? How balanced is the reality between the oppressor and the oppressed? Because the oppressor does the odd good act, the oppressed should praise their oppressor?

#2 - The number of incidents like the one you mentioned are way outnumbered by the ones like in this article. Many more children are harassed and abused by Israeli soldiers than are saved by them. And as #3 said, just because you do the odd good deed doesn't justify all the bad deeds you do.
