3 Palestinians injured after Israeli army 'bombs Hebron home'

June 15, 2014 10:57 P.M. (Updated: June 17, 2014 3:05 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Three Palestinians were injured late Sunday after the Israeli army bombed open the door of a house in the city of Hebron, locals told Ma'an.

Locals said that Israeli forces in the Ein Deir al-Baha area of the city blew open the door of a house belonging to Akram al-Qawasami, injuring him and two young children.

Al-Qawasami, his eight-year-old son Muhammad, and his young daughter Sujoud sustained shrapnel injuries, the sources said.

Soldiers then raided the house and arrested Zaid Akram al-Qawasami.

The Israeli forces called through a loudspeaker moments before bombing open the door, the sources added.

A military spokeswoman refused to comment on the incident, saying the Israeli army could not elaborate on any of its activities in Hebron "at this time."

Israeli soldiers have been heavily deployed in Hebron following the disappearance of three Israeli youths from an area near the Jewish-only settlement of Gush Etzion late Thursday.

The have made dozens of arrests and erected multiple checkpoints in the area, restricting the freedom of movement of thousands of Palestinians.
