Israeli forces detain Palestinian siblings in East Jerusalem

Oct. 9, 2018 2:32 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 9, 2018 4:59 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained two siblings, on Monday evening, from the Batn al-Hawa area in the Silwan neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center confirmed that Israeli forces detained Suad Abu Ramouz along with her brother Jawad Abu Ramouz from the Batn al-Hawa area.

The center said that prior to their detention, Israeli settlers assaulted the Abu Ramouz siblings, as well as several other residents in the area.

One of the Israeli settlers pepper-sprayed Suad and Jawad.

Eyewitnesses told the center that an Israeli settler threatened to run over Suad with his vehicle before pepper-spraying her.

Silwan is one of many Palestinian neighborhoods in occupied East Jerusalem that is seeing an influx of Israeli settlers. There are eight illegal Israeli settlement outposts in Silwan, the first one being under Israeli settler control since 2004.

The number of assaults by Israeli settlers towards Palestinian residents in Silwan has escalated as the illegal Israeli settlement expansion throughout the neighborhood continues.
