Israeli Forces Abducted 9 Residents of Ni'lin Last Night,

Israeli forces invaded the village in the early hours of the morning,
firing live ammunition, rubber-coated steel bullets, tear-gas and
sound bombs. They entered many houses, arresting 9 residents. Among
those arrested were at least 3 minors, including a 12 year old and 13
year old.

Witnesses have reported that the Israeli forces were in the cases of
two of the minors looking for other people, taking the minors when
they could not find those they wanted to arrest. Mohammed Salah

Khawaje (17), Imad Azzam Khawaje (18), Mustafa Khawaje (20 year old
