Activists: Israeli forces assault 2 Palestinians in Hebron

Sept. 9, 2013 8:34 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 11, 2013 10:48 A.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli troops on Monday evening assaulted two Palestinians in Hebron, local activists said.

Israeli soldiers, stationed at the entrance to Shuhada street in the center of Hebron, "brutally attacked Mufeed Sharabati before they detained him," Youth Against Settlements said.

They also assaulted Imad al-Atrash, who was taken to Hebron's public hospital, the group said.

Youth Against Settlements spokesman Issa Amr said that earlier Monday Israeli soldiers had raided Sharabati's home, which is undergoing construction work.

The Israeli forces prevented the entry of building materials to the house and ordered laborers to stop work.

After a long discussion, the soldiers agreed to allow the construction materials to be brought into the home on the condition that Sharabati demolished a recently-built bathroom.

"Sharabati had no choice but to demolish the bathroom, but after he finished the soldiers refused to allow construction material into his house as agreed," Amr told Ma'an.

"Instead they mocked him and heated argument developed between him and the soldiers who assaulted him viciously before they detained him," he added.
