Palestinian men from the Wadi al-Juz
neighborhood of East Jerusalem say they
were “brutally” beaten by Israeli troops
who stormed a house in the neighborhood
Mahir Abu Dalou told Ma’an Monday that Israeli soldiers broke into a building belonging to his family
late on Saturday evening. He added that his son Abdul-
Rahman, 17, cousin Ammar Abu Dalou, 20, and their friend
Majd Jamal Siyam, 16, were in the front yard of the building
when the soldiers broke in.
Israeli officesr then “brutally” assaulted the three with rifle
butts and clubs. The officers, he added, threatened to “beat
and shoot my brother and my wife.”
Abu Dalou added that his son Abdul-Rahman was taken to
hospital for stitches after he sustained cuts in his face.
Ammar Abu Dalou, he added, sustained bruises all over his
body, while Majd Siyam was stopped for an hour after he
was beaten on his head.
“The soldiers treated us savagely under the guise that
young men who partook in the clashes in the neighborhood
were hiding in our house,” added Abu Dalou.
