BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces assaulted seven members of a Palestinian family, including the elderly parents, in Arrub refugee camp near Hebron on Friday.

Locals said that Israeli soldiers tried to raid the house of Mohammad Mahmoud Abu Dawoud, and when family members tried to stop them from entering the house the troops beat them severely.

Troops also caused property damage to the residence, destroying furniture throughout the five-story apartment building the family lives in.

Medics in the Palestinian Red Crescent said that homeowner Abu Dawoud suffered several bruises, while his wife Nathmiya, 60, suffered broken ribs as a result of her beating by Israeli soldiers. She subsequently fainted.

Ibrahim Mahmoud Abu Dawoud, 20, suffered a broken finger, while Fadi Abu Dawoud suffered a broken nose, and Yousef Abu Dawoud suffered bruises in different parts of his body.

Ibrahim Mohammad Abu Dawoud was hit in the head with a rifle butt, and Ahmad Mohammad Abu Dawoud was injured in the head after a stun grenade exploded near him.

The Abu Dawoud family filed a complaint against the Israeli army to the Palestinian liaisons office.

Israeli forces also fired tear gas and stun grenades at houses in the area. Many local residents, including women and children, suffered from excessive tear gas inhalation as a result.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
