Israeli forces detain three Palestinians, assault girl in West Bank

JENIN, June 30, 2017 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Friday and Thursday night detained at least three Palestinians and assaulted a girl mostly during raids across the West Bank, said security sources.

Israeli forces raided Fandaqumiya village, south of Jenin, detaining a Palestinian who works as a police officer in Ramallah.

They also conducted a raid into Kafr Ra‘I village, southwest of Jenin, where they detained a Palestinian after storming his family home.

Elsewhere in the northern West Bank, forces ransacked and wreaked havoc into several homes during an overnight raid into Kafr Qalil village, south of Nablus.

Another Palestinian was handcuffed and detained by Israeli soldiers from the old city of Hebron in the southern West Bank purportedly for possessing a knife.

This came several hours after soldiers physically assaulted a 17-year-old Palestinian girl, causing bruises across her body.

The girl was reportedly assaulted after she and her friends were playing with a laser pointer in the vicinity of her family home. She was rushed into a public hospital in Hebron for treatment.
