The Israeli army attacks a village near Bethlehem and kidnaps a man and his Jewish wife

The Israeli army invaded the village of Hussan located near Bethlehem city in the southern part of the West Bank. During the invasion on Thursday morning the soldiers kidnapped a Palestinian man and his wife that is from Jewish origins.

Mohamed Hamamerh, 25, met his wife Melissa, 23, several months ago when he used to work at the settlement of Bitar Illit, an Israeli settlement built illegally on the land of Hussan village.

When the young couple decided to get married, they came to Bethlehem city were Melissa converted to Islam. They were married last month during a large wedding at Hussan village, Hamamerh's family reported.

The settlers of Bitar Illit attacked the village of Hussan, demanding that Melissa was kidnapped and forced to get married, which the family of Hamamerh denies.

The village told media sources in Bethlehem that the settlers threatened to send the Israeli army to get Melissa out using force, which was done today. Witnesses said that the army surrounded the couple's home and then kidnapped the two, and took them to an unknown location.

The Hamamerh family said that the settlers are using the army forces as a tool to force their son to divorce his wife.

  • In 1917, Btitish troops parachuted opium and hashish to the turkish troops and stole Palestine from them. Israel's prime minister, Ariel Sharon used terror against Palestinians who dared to defend what was left of their stolen homeland. Like Suddam Hussein, Sharon violated dozens of UN resolutions by using hundreds of tanks, American supplied gunships, and planes in an unrelenting campaign of bombing, murdering, buldozing, starving, and terrorizng the Palestinians off of what remained of their More..

    • i didnt noticed nothing about such an incident.

      if the IDF was indeed making a "kidnap" operation it was out of fear that the woman's life is in danger.
      but i didnt hear nothing about this kind of story.
      i know that there are several israeli jewish girls which got involved and even married to pales. men and are staying with them in the west bank.

  • I suppose it's better than getting your head cut off in some Arab country, for that matter, any country that is under the Sharia law. Stupid backward religion, created Muhammad the mass murdering pedophile.
