Israeli forces detain entire family of Palestinian attack suspect

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces repeatedly raided the family home of Abed al-Rahman Abu Jamal, who allegedly carried out a stabbing attack, injuring seven members from the Israeli police forces, in the Jabal al-Mukabbir neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem, on Thursday morning.

According to the family members of Abed, large numbers of Israeli forces raided the Abu Jamal family home repeatedly, firstly detaining the mother of Abed and secondly detaining his father along with his two brothers and sister.

Sources added that Israeli forces violently searched the home and shouted curses at the family.

Israeli forces also threatened the family with punitive demolition of their home.

Abed was shot and injured by Israeli live ammunition, after he carried out a stabbing attack, injuring seven members from the Israeli police forces at the Israeli police station in the Jabal al-Mukabbir neighborhood, in East Jerusalem.

Abed’s medical condition remained unknown.

It is noteworthy that Israel always demolishes family homes of Palestinians, who were involved in attacking Israelis as part of its collective punishment policy against the Palestinian people.

However, the use of such a policy only against Palestinians and not against Israelis, who have committed attacks or hate crimes against Palestinians, has only fueled more anger against the decades-long Israeli occupation.
