Israeli forces raid home of Ma'an reporter in Jerusalem

Dec. 4, 2014 10:03 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 6, 2014 1:11 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) – Israeli forces broke into home of a Ma'an reporter in Jerusalem after midnight Wednesday and inspected the house thoroughly looking for her brother Majdi who was at work when the soldiers arrived.

Maysa Abu Ghazala said the forces detained her elderly father and her brother Ali to put pressure on Majdi to make sure he would turn himself in.

The Israeli soldiers, she said, broke into the family house at 1:30 a.m. and said they wanted to detain Majdi. They were told that Majdi was at work, so they inspected every room thoroughly before they forced the family to telephone him and tell him to show up at Israeli police station.

The soldiers then detained Majdi's father Mahmoud Abu Ghazala, 72, and his son Ali, 29, and took them to Beit Orot settlement on the Mount of Olives, then to the Russian Compound interrogation center.

The two were released after Majdi arrived at a police station in Salah al-Din Street.
