HEBRON (Ma’an) — Soldiers ransacked the office of a Palestinian community center in Hebron on Saturday and arrested the coordinator of a local coalition group.

Issa Amr, leader of a group called Youth Against Settlements, was blindfolded and detained.

“Soldiers took me to a military base in Tel Rumeida, they handcuffed and blindfolded me where I was brutally beaten for no reason. They also threatened to kill me, and settlers spat on me several times.

Then they chanted hate slogans and things like ‘each Arab dog will have its day’. After that, soldiers steered me in the streets as they chanted that Golani battalion is the best in the Israeli army,” Issa Amr told Ma’an after he was released.

The Sumud and Tahaddi, or Steadfastness and Challenge, Center has been threatened by soldiers and settlers for years, he said.

Around 800 Jewish settlers live among 30,000 Palestinians in the parts of the ancient city of Hebron that are under Israeli control.

Routine settler abuse of the Palestinian community in Hebron includes physical assault, stone throwing, throwing waste water and gunfire.

The Israeli human rights group BT’selem says there is a “systematic failure” to protect Palestinians from settler attacks in Hebron, with Israeli soldiers often witnessing violent assaults without intervening.
