NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Three Palestinian workers were hospitalized Saturday morning after being assaulted by Israeli soldiers at Zaatara checkpoint south of Nablus in the northern West Bank.

One of the victims, Tariq Abdah, 26, told Ma’an that he and 20-year-old Thaer Abu Salih and 21-year-old Salih Abu Salih were travelling from Ramallah to Nablus when Israeli troops stopped them at the checkpoint.

“The soldiers ordered us to step out of the car, then they started to kick us and hit us with a steel chair and with rifle butts. We were beaten for more than an hour before they released us, suffering bruises all over our bodies,” Abdah told Ma’an.
