3 East Jerusalem teens beaten by Israeli officers

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Three young 

Palestinian men from the Wadi al-Juz 

neighborhood of East Jerusalem say they 

were “brutally” beaten by Israeli troops 

who stormed a house in the neighborhood 


Mahir Abu Dalou told Ma’an Monday that Israeli soldiers broke into a building belonging to his family 

late on Saturday evening. He added that his son Abdul-

Rahman, 17, cousin Ammar Abu Dalou, 20, and their friend 

Majd Jamal Siyam, 16, were in the front yard of the building 

when the soldiers broke in. 

Israeli officesr then “brutally” assaulted the three with rifle 

butts and clubs. The officers, he added, threatened to “beat 

and shoot my brother and my wife.”

Abu Dalou added that his son Abdul-Rahman was taken to 

hospital for stitches after he sustained cuts in his face. 

Ammar Abu Dalou, he added, sustained bruises all over his 

body, while Majd Siyam was stopped for an hour after he 

was beaten on his head. 

“The soldiers treated us savagely under the guise that 

young men who partook in the clashes in the neighborhood 

were hiding in our house,” added Abu Dalou.
