Over 600 detained in Jerusalem since Abu Khdeir murder

Aug. 14, 2014 5:06 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 15, 2014 12:20 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained dozens of Palestinians in East Jerusalem overnight Wednesday for the second night in a row as the number of Palestinians detained since the murder of Muhammad Abu Khdeir in early July surpassed 600.

Israeli forces carried out pre-dawn raids in Silwan, Shufat and the Old City, transferring detainees to the Russian Compound in West Jerusalem.

Some detainees had to be transferred to Lod interrogation center as cells reached full capacity.

Most of those detained were arrested following large demonstrations protesting the murder of Abu Khdeir by Jewish extremists.

During the overnight arrests, Israeli soldiers assaulted Hajj Khalil Abd ar-Rahim al-Abbasi and his son Imad in Silwan. Imad was taken to al-Maqasid Hospital in the Mount of Olives.

The mother and sister of Ziad Ahmad al-Qaq were also assaulted by Israeli officers when they raided his home and detained him, according to family members. They said Israeli officers punched the two before pushing them to the ground.

A spokesman of East Jerusalem committee of prisoners’ families Amjad Abu Asab told Ma'an that as least 174 of those detained since July are children.

Israeli forces launched widespread arrest raids across East Jerusalem overnight Tuesday, detained 57 Palestinians.

Abu Asab named those detained overnight Wednesday as Khaldoun al-Ashmar, Muhammad Samman, Amin Jabir, Muhammad Arnaoot, Nimir al-Basiti, Basim al-Basiti, Bassam al-Basiti, Raghib Abu Sneinah, Ghalib Abu Sneinah, Osama al-Julani, Khadr al-Barani, Wisam Nofal, Muhammad Jabir, Abdullah Abu Diab, Ramzi Rishiq, Anas al-Afghani, paramedic Tahaddi Tokhalli, Amir Zaydani, Muhammad Zaydani, Rami Fayiz Abu Khdeir, Muhammad Nidal Abu Khdeir, Muhammad Khalid Audah, Aed Khalil Abbasi, his brothers Ali and Muhammad, Ali Sabri Abu Diab, Naim Ibrhim Hadiya, Luay Sami Rajabi, Mahmoud Jamal Ghayth, Ziad Ahmad al-Qaq, Mahmoud Jamal Ghayth, Tariq Adil Sarhan, Muhammad Ali Sarhan, Abed Salih Abu Khdeir, Ahmad Farouq Abu Khdeir, Mousa Sufyan Abu Khdeir, Yahya Zakariyya Abu Khdeir, Abd al-Rahman Abu Khdeir, Omar al-Falah Abu Khdeir and Radi Abu Khdeir.
