Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) — A Palestinian teenager was attacked by Israeli troops yesterday in Silwan while washing his car, provoking clashes between residents and Israeli forces. While Israeli police attest that Muath Sheyukhi, 18, had been throwing

stones and empty bottles at Israeli troops, the claim has been contested by a large number of witnesses, who state that the young man had not engaged in any provocation. Sheyuki was, say witnesses, simply washing his car outside the cafe in which he works when Israeli forces attacked him and brought him in for interrogation at Salah Al-Din Street Station.

Sheyuki is the recent of countless Palestinian residents of Silwan to be targeted in such an arbitrary manner, with Israeli forces often missing those involved in clashes.
