2 settlers attempt to kidnap Palestinian child in Jerusalem

July 29, 2014 11:57 A.M. (Updated: July 30, 2014 7:52 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Two Israeli settlers attempted to "kidnap" a two-year old Palestinian from Jerusalem while he was walking with his father and two sisters in Shufat neighborhood in northern Jerusalem on Monday, the family said.

Taha Riyad Tufahha's father told Ma'an that he was taking a walk with his two daughters and two-year old son in Shufat when suddenly a Jewish settler approached and attempted to grab the child who was walking a few meters away from his father.

The father said that a group of people who were in the street intervened and prevented the kidnapping attempt, however.

The father added that the settler fled the place in a car with another woman towards the Ramot settlement.

Palestinians have reported numerous attempts at kidnapping children as well as mob attacks since early July, when three Israeli youths were found to have been killed after hitchhiking near a settlement in the West Bank.

In the most brutal attack, Muhammad Abu Khdeir, 16, was beaten and then burned alive by Jewish settlers in East Jerusalem on July 2.

More than 550,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, where they are located around and between Palestinian villages.
