Medics: Palestinian beaten by Israeli soldiers at checkpoint

May 29, 2011 11:09 A.M. (Updated: May 30, 2011 8:36 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers brutally attacked a Palestinian man at an army checkpoint near Hebron on Saturday evening, medics said.

Israeli soldiers stopped Mahmoud Al-Battat, 19, at around 7 p.m. at a checkpoint near Ad-Dhahiriya in the southern West Bank as he returned from work in Israel, medical officials told Ma'an.

Soldiers beat him until he fainted, director of operations at the Palestinian Red Crescent Nasser Al-Qabaja said.

Al-Battat recovered consciousness at around 11 p.m. and phoned his family.

After receiving the call, relatives said they searched for two hours before they found him, and took him to a medical center in Ad-Dhahiriya.

From the medical center, doctors said he should be transferred to hospital, and he was taken by ambulance to a public hospital in Hebron, where medics said he had bruises across his body.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said the army was "not familiar" with the incident.
