JENIN, Thursday, January 31, 2019 (WAFA) – A Palestinian teenager sustained multiple fractures in his legs after he was assaulted and beaten by Israeli soldiers near Jenin city in the northern West Bank, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent (PRC).
PRC official, Mahmoud Saadi, told WAFA that 17-year-old Majdi Abu-Ghali from Jenin was assaulted and beaten up severely by Israeli soldiers after he entered the site of the abandoned Israeli settlement of Ghanim, east of Jenin.
WAFA correspondent said the teenager had not known of the Israeli soldiers who raided the evacuated settlement, and that he was surprised by soldiers who shortly attacked and brutally beat him up him for no reason.
The teenager was moved to nearby Khalil Suleiman public hospital for medical treatment.
Israeli occupation forces have a long record of beating up Palestinians while briefly detaining them. Earlier today, an Israeli court indicted five Israeli soldiers of beating two handcuffed and blindfolded Palestinian detainees.
According to the indictment, on a day in early January the soldiers punched, slapped, kicked and beat the two detainees, hitting them in their head, face, chest, legs and more.
