The Palestinian Prisoners Society says Israeli forces have been expanding the abduction of Palestinian children in the occupied West Bank.

In a statement released on Monday, the Society said at least seven children, including two brothers, had been kidnapped in the previous 24 hours.

It also noted that Israel’s military court extended the detention of three children from the town of Beit Ummar near the city of al-Khalil.

Reports of missing children are coming from the occupied West Bank, where 250 children have gone missing since early June.

Also on Monday, Save the Children said, overall, virtually 21,000 Palestinian children have been either missing, kidnapped, or buried under the rubble or in mass graves as a result of Israel’s campaign. Families of these children say they are unable to confirm their whereabouts and well-being due to intensified restrictions imposed by Israel.
