Palestinian worker injured by police dogs

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Palestinian worker Hatem Abdul Razzaq At-Talahma, 42, was injured Thursday morning in the city of Hebron, when Israeli military police dogs bit him at his workplace.

At-Talahma told Ma'an that he believed the dogs were released in order to attack him, as he worked in the area adjacent to a wall separating the city's settler population from Palestinians in the Ar-Ramadeen area.

Medics said the man was treated for dog bites on his limbs and body.

At-Talahma said that following the attack, Israeli forces refused to give him first aid. He was evacuated to hospital by Palestinian Red Crescent medics.

Representatives of the Israeli police in Hebron could not be reached for comment.

Tensions are high in the city, as hundreds of Jewish worshippers travel to Hebron, where a large community of Jewish settlers illegally reside in the city center and in built-up settlements around Hebron.

During Passover, the Ibrahimi Mosque is closed off to Muslims and parts of the city are blocked to Palestinians.
