TULKAREM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces transferred 21 children planning to work inside Israel to Tulkarem police on Monday, security sources said.

The children, from the West Bank city of Hebron, were all around 15 years old. Two residents of Yatta in Hebron had taken them to Tulkarem, and planned to smuggle them into Israel to work, the sources said.

Security officials said it was the second such incident in the last month, and that Tulkarem police coordinated with Hebron officers to return the children.

The officials said police regularly seize children selling sweets in the West Bank and inside Israel, and called on parents to stop their children working.
