Today, April 19, 2012, two 15-year-old boys, Fady Abu Fanoos and Hakeem Nasr, were arrested from Beit Ommar at about 2pm. Nasr was released after about 30 minutes. Israeli soldiers tried to arrest a third boy, but he escaped. A woman fainted when they tried to arrest her nephew, and an ambulance came to take her to the hospital. Soldiers shot teargas into the town and at people’s homes prior to the arrests.

This makes 5 arrests out of 7 attempted arrests in Beit Ommar in the past 12 hours, including last night’s raid.
