RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man said Israeli police detained and threatened him on Wednesday, several days after he was involved in a car accident with a settler.

Sharif Azmi Al-Shyoukhi, 21, said police tried to force him to take full responsibility for the accident, which happened Sunday.

Al-Shyoukhi said an Israeli settler sped after him, causing the accident. He sustained moderate injuries in the crash.

He said Israeli officers detained him for several hours on Wednesday and tried to bribe him, offering to drop the case for 3,000 shekels ($864).

He was told the case would be taken to court if he did not pay, and the investigator threatened to hold him at the Russian compound in Jerusalem, Al-Shyoukhi added.

His father, secretary-general of the People's Committees Azmi Al-Shyoukhi, urged human rights groups to monitor settlers' attacks on Palestinians.
