Rami Hamamra, the Director of Husan Village Council, reported that a settler from the "Sidi Boaz" settlement outpost, situated between Al-Khader and Husan, abducted 17-year-old Basil Abdel Wahab Hamamra.

Basil was taken while he was herding sheep in the Al-Sharafa area of the village.

The abduction occurred amidst a surge in settler assaults on Palestinians in the West Bank, coinciding with the ongoing Israeli Occupation aggression against Gaza for 176 consecutive days.

Ministry of Health in Gaza said that the death toll from the aggression has reached 32,623 martyrs, with 75,092 people injured since October 7.
