Israel arrests four Palestinian children in first week back at school 

The Israeli army arrested four Palestinian children in the early hours of Wednesday from their homes in the occupied city of Bethlehem in the southern West Bank.

The four children, Yousef Jamal al-Harimi, 15, Adam Ayyad, 15, Mansour Saleh Faraj, 16, and Issa Muhammad Zarina, 17, are all students at al-Mahd School in Bethlehem.

Manar al-Harimi, sister of Yousef, described scenes of fear and anxiety when Israeli soldiers raided the house at 3:00am.

"They knocked on the door loudly, and my father who works later was not home at the time," Harimi told Middle East Eye.

The soldiers then searched the house, Harimi added, before asking Yousef's mother to sign a set of documents that included a declaration that the teenager was free of illnesses at the time of his arrest and that he was not subjected to any violence during the raid.
