Israeli soldiers take over house overlooking Hebron settlement

Hebron - Ma'an - Israeli soldiers in Hebron took over a house overlooking the Kiryat Arba settlement in Hebron last week, the home's owners said Wednesday.

The house, owned by Al-Hajj Suleiman Ar-Ragaby, is located on the Jawhar Mount hill in Hebron. A family member told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers arrived at the home one day before the start of Eid Al-Fitr, remaining there for over a week and preventing the three families living in it from moving about their homes.

Hamid Ar-Ragaby said that soldiers took over the father's three-story house and abused relatives inside.

"Israeli soldiers detained my younger brother for no reason and attacked him. As a result, he was taken to a hospital for treatment when bruises covered his entire body," Ar-Ragaby said.

He added that Israeli forces routinely seize their house each Saturday, and that it had been going on for quite some time.
