AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Israeli soldiers injured a Palestinian man using a police dog and arrested two minors as tensions run high in the West Bank.

Hatem Abdurrazzaq Talahima, 42, said Israeli soldiers released a police hound against him while he was passing near the apartheid wall in the Al-Ramadein area southwest of Dhahiriyya south of Al-Khalil on Monday. The man bled after the dog bit into his arm.

Police then refused to transfer him to the Al-Khalil hospital after a Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance arrived at the scene.

The same day, the Israeli occupation force (IOF) nabbed two minors during raids in Juyous, east of the West Bank city of Qalqilya.

The soldiers patrolled the town’s streets and alleys on foot and vehicles in a bid to send a message of terror to citizens.

Those arrested in the operation were aged 16 and 15.

The incident came after a Jewish settlers attacked a group of Palestinian children in Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah district a day earlier, beating them and spraying hot gas in their eyes.

Also on Monday, IOF soldiers randomly distributed a number of notices at the Kafriyat crossroads south of Tulkarem in the West Bank.

The notices called for citizens to refer to the Israeli intelligence headquarters in the city.

Locals reported that IOF soldiers have erected random checkpoint at the said crossroads and checked the identification of passengers blocking traffic.
