HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers assaulted Thursday night a resident and his mother in Beit Ummar and a family from Hebron, an official said.

A spokesman for popular committees in Beit Ummar said that Israeli forces assaulted Ashraf Izzat Khalil Sabarneh as he was trying to enter his own house. They hit him in his head and face and followed him inside the house. He suffered bruises.

The spokesman, Muhammad Ayyad Awad, said that soldiers also assaulted Sabarneh’s mother when she tried to defend her son. They assaulted her and pushed her to the ground before they threw a tear-gas canister inside the house.

Ashraf Sabarneh was sent to a near hospital for treatment.

Awad highlighted that Israeli forces prevented him from taking pictures of Sabarneh’s house.

Israeli forces also raided a house that belongs to the Massoudi family near the Ibrahimi mosque in the city of Hebron.

Soldiers assaulted the family, leaving two brothers with bruises and injuries.
