HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers from Havot Maon "kidnapped" a Palestinian child south of Hebron on Saturday evening, a local activist group reported, before releasing him a few hours later.

Coordinator of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements south of Hebron Rateb al-Jubour said in a statement that settlers took 6-year-old Mosab Kamel Mousa Robai from the village of Tuwani east of Yatta.

He said that the settlers released the boy after a few hours and left him in the forest located adjacent to the settlement of Havot Maon, which is located adjacent to the village.

Al-Jubour added that the child was in "difficult" and deteriorating health conditions when he was released and was unable to speak.

He was subsequently transferred to Abu al-Hasan al-Qasim Hospital in Yatta for treatment.

Havot Maon is home to around 200 Jewish settlers and is considered one of the most violent and radical outposts in the West Bank.

On April 24, settlers from Havot Maon attacked a mother and her four children with rocks while they were walking on one of the few roads in the area where locals do not require army protection to travel, injuring a seven-year-old.

Children in nearby villages require Israeli military escorts to walk to school, and on April 9, settlers attacked a group of schoolchildren as they were walking while Israeli soldiers watched from a nearby vehicle.

In mid-December, Operation Dove said it had documented 13 incidents of property damage by settlers, 13 violent attacks against Palestinians and 17 cases of intimidation against Palestinians and international observers so far in 2013.

Around 3,000 Israeli settlers live in illegal Jewish-only settlements in the Yatta region, according to the Applied Research Institute Jerusalem.

The South Hebron Hills, known locally as Masafer Yatta, lie almost entirely in Area C, the 62 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli civil and security control since the 1993 Oslo Accords.

Less than 1 percent of Area C has been planned for Palestinian development, while some 135 settlements and over 100 outposts have been built in the same area.

Well,with Israel's lawlessness,& morals,ethics &national integrity already in the sewage pit,no doubt the Shas-KKKach-Kahanist/B.Goldstein kangaroo-Knesset will promote them to high ministerial posts(like Lieberman&Bennett et al)?Don't forget,these extremist racists control the executive,legislative,judicial&military in Israel now.As long as Israel needs"Jewish"demographics then all thug-scum are welcome,as long as they're a tiny bit "Jewish",on(voting)paper!Nazism was the SAME!

"...Al-Jubour added that the child was in "difficult" and deteriorating health conditions when he was released and was unable to speak. He was subsequently transferred to Abu al-Hasan al-Qasim Hospital in Yatta for treatment..." It would appear that the settlers had a good time, one way or another.

Palestinians get kidnapped daily by Zionist occupation force daily , settlers are off duty soldiers, Israel's population is militant, so what would happen if Jewish kids started getting kidnapped ???

To d'Arc #2: 'No arrests are anticipated are there?' Are you suggesting there should be legal curbs on what Jews in Greater Israel can do to gentiles?

Just a thought. Israel is been known for trafficking humans to use them as labor workers especially from Africa. Maybe some of the 200 girls kidnap in Nigeria will end up in Israel as slave worker if a deal is not been arrange for their release. Believe it or not, but they might end up there if the price is right.

To JoeFattal #8: ' ...Maybe some of the 200 girls kidnap in Nigeria will end up in Israel as slave worker if a deal is not been arrange for their release. Believe it or not, but they might end up there if the price is right.' Meh. But Israel is also a leader in the human organs trade. They might wind up being put to use that way.

Havot Maon shows every sign of being a depraved cult. I mean is there a Rabbi there tut-tutting this? Or condoning it? Or inciting it? It's hard to know. But if Israel had a shred of decency (ROFL) it would get to the bottom of it. Eerily, it suggests the origins of the lurid Medieval "blood libel" in that, though Jews presumably DIDN'T exsanguinate Christian children for Passover matzos, the contempt, arrogance and the THREAT of violence (conveyed by the Chosen of Havot Maon) may have

(contd.) suggested to medieval Christians that they were CAPABLE of it. But what's the adage? Don't criticise someone until you've walked a mile in their moccasins...or in this case, dirty trainers. So why do they do it? Things which would appall normal people? What's the other saying? Junk in, junk out. These Jews from Russia (via Brooklyn) have been indoctrinated from birth in the arrant nonsense that the land BELONGS to them and anyone else on it is trespassing and can be tormented and

(contd.) bullied with impunity. Indeed, that there's a DUTY, a religious injunction to! They're raised from the cradle in the sociopathy which results in this sadistic torture of a terrified little boy.
