JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Three young Palestinian men from the Wadi al-Juz neighborhood of East Jerusalem say they were “brutally” beaten by Israeli troops who stormed a house in the neighborhood Saturday.

Mahir Abu Dalou told Ma’an Monday that Israeli soldiers broke into a building belonging to his family late on Saturday evening. He added that his son Abdul-Rahman, 17, cousin Ammar Abu Dalou, 20, and their friend Majd Jamal Siyam, 16, were in the front yard of the building when the soldiers broke in.

Israeli officesr then “brutally” assaulted the three with rifle butts and clubs. The officers, he added, threatened to “beat and shoot my brother and my wife.”

Abu Dalou added that his son Abdul-Rahman was taken to hospital for stitches after he sustained cuts in his face. Ammar Abu Dalou, he added, sustained bruises all over his body, while Majd Siyam was stopped for an hour after he was beaten on his head.

“The soldiers treated us savagely under the guise that young men who partook in the clashes in the neighborhood were hiding in our house,” added Abu Dalou.
