AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Israeli forces assaulted Wednesday morning an elderly couple during an arrest operation in Beit Ummar north of the West Bank city of Al-Khalil.

Israeli soldiers assaulted the Abu Marya family while they were working on their farm near the Karmi Tsur settlement. They arrested Waseem Abu Marya, 19, after attacking him and his father Mihna, 70, and mother Nazmiya, 65, breaking her jaw.

Israeli forces arrested two other Al-Khalil men the same morning at a checkpoint in the city. It has yet to be identified where they were taken.

A large force from the Israeli army arrested another man from the village of Dir Estya west of Salfit that morning after raiding his home.
