Israeli forces 'detain student, beat father' in Qalqiliya

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers assaulted a Palestinian official Wednesday during a raid at his home in Qalqiliya in the northern West Bank, says a human rights activist.

Muyassar Atiyani said Israeli soldiers beat Sheikh Abdul-Hakim Issa al-Deik, director of the Qalqiliya office of the Palestinian ministry of endowments.

She quoted al-Deik’s son Wisam as saying that his father sustained bruises and fractures.

Atiyani added that Israeli soldiers ransacked the home before they detained Mujahid, an 18-year-old son of Sheikh Abdul-Hakim al-Diek. He is a freshman at the Salfit branch of Al-Quds Open University.

An army spokeswoman said she was aware of eight overnight arrests but only in the Nablus area.
