Israeli forces raid house, detain father and son in Silwan

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained two Palestinians in East Jerusalem early Wednesday, a committee spokesman said.

Amjad Abu Asab, spokesman for a Jerusalem-based committee that represents prisoners' families, told Ma'an that Israeli troops and intelligence officers overnight raided the Beir Ayyoub area of the Silwan neighborhood and detained a young man and his father.

Abu Asab identified the detainees as 20-year-old Abd al-Rahman Shaloudi and his 43-year-old father, Idris.

The Israeli soldiers "savagely" broke into their house and damaged its interior, Abu Asab said.

He said Abd al-Rahman's grandmother was taken to hospital after one of the soldiers slammed a door on her hand.

The young man recently spent 16 months in Israeli prisons, and was released on Dec. 22, 2013, Abu Asab said.

A spokesman for the Israeli police did not answer calls seeking comment.

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.
