Israeli troops detained a 9-year-old Palestinian at school. It's 'becoming normal', locals say

(CNN)  The day before we met, human rights campaigner Aref Jaber recorded the arrest of a 9-year-old Palestinian boy, taken out of school in the West Bank city of Hebron by armed Israeli soldiers.

His footage shows soldiers inside Ziad Jaber elementary school, arguing with the school principal and other teachers, as they attempt to remove Zein Idris and his 7-year-old brother Taim.

At one point on the video, one of the teachers is told that if he does not let go of Zein, the soldier will break the teacher's arm.
