EMERGENCY ACTION: Students Abducted And Beaten

Dear Prime Minister Olmert and media representatives:


On April 18, around midnight, the Israeli army attacked the home of peace activist Refai Fayyed in the village of Zbabdeh near Jenin. The IDF terrorized the Fayyed family with attack dogs, beat them, forced them out of their home, trashed their home, destroyed computers and personal property, and kidnapped Refai's brother Mohammad Abdulla Asaad Fayyad who is 17 years old high school student.

The family has not received any information about the whereabouts Mohammad since that night. Three other students at Alzababdeh Secondary School where taken as well. I am very concerned for the fate of these students, including Mohammad Abdulla Asaad Fayyad, ID Card number is: 852514207, and the brutal Israeli treatment of Palestinian youth and their families.
