Palestinian teen kidnapped in Jerusalem
Unidentified assailants kidnapped a 16-year-old Palestinian, Amir Majdi Ramadan, from Beit Hanina while he was heading to his school on a motorcycle Tuesday.
Ramadan's father said that according to what his son told him and reported to the police, while he was on his motorcycle going to school Tuesday morning he was hit by a car from behind, three unidentified assailants beat him with a gun on his head and placed him in the trunk of their vehicle.
The boy's father added that he did not know of the incident until he received a call from Amir's school telling him his son did not arrive.
He attempted to call his son several times before he received a call from a friend telling him his son was found lying in a neighborhood in Beit Hanina, and that a local took him to the main street and called an ambulance.
He said that the Israeli police arrived to the area and found a jacket covering the boy that is thought to belong to one of the kidnappers. A booklet in Hebrew was also found in the jacket's pocket.
Ramadan's motorcycle was found by the Israeli police in a garbage container. However, his school bag was not found.
Ramadan was taken to the Hadassa Ein Karem Hospital. He had bleeding in his lungs and bruises on his neck and back.
Amir said that he could not recognize any of the kidnappers, saying none of them spoke a word to him.
