Settlers attack Palestinians in East Jerusalem home

July 8, 2013 6:30 P.M. (Updated: July 9, 2013 6:29 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Two armed Israeli settlers raided a Palestinian home in East Jerusalem on Monday, and assaulted the owner and his friend, the owner said.

Sami al-Qalouni, 53, said he was at home in al-Tur village with his friend Jamal Abu Steif when the settlers raided in what al-Qalouni described as an attempt to take control of the building.

The settlers beat al-Qalouni and Abu Steif with iron bars, al-Qalouni told Ma'an.

Al-Qalouni suffered serious head, back and hand wounds, and Abu Steif sustained several fractures to his hand, a Ma'an reporter said.

Settlers previously set up a tent on al-Qalouni's land.

Israeli police took the two wounded Palestinians to hospital and removed the tent, the reporter said.

A spokesman for Israeli police could not be reached for comment.
