Israeli soldiers raid and detain Palestinian American rohersIsraeli forces conducted an overnight raid in the Gaza Strip and detained two American brothers, whose whereabouts are now unknown, their cousin told HuffPost.

Borak and Hashem Alagha, ages 18 and 20, were sleeping when Israeli forces raided their home in western Khan Younis, south of Gaza City, at around 5 a.m. Thursday, said cousin Yasmeen Elagha.

Soldiers allegedly assaulted the men’s mother and 14-year-old brother before blindfolding and tying up the women and children there. Soldiers then trashed their home and slashed vehicle tires before leaving with the Alagha brothers, their Canadian father, and an uncle who is mentally disabled, Elagha said. Soldiers also detained other members of her extended family in nearby homes, she added.

Elagha, who lives in Chicago, got a phone call from her aunt — the mother of the two detained men — late Thursday night.

“Tell the Americans to save my sons,” the men’s mother said through tears, according to Elagha.
