Friday, Palestinian authorities managed to return an 11-year-old boy to his family after he was kidnapped by individuals in the Yatta area, south of Hebron, West Bank.

The police media spokesperson, Colonel Louai Erzikat, explained that the child was kidnapped Thursday while he was going to school by people in the city of Yatta. The child's family filed a complaint with the Yatta Police Station.
