BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Three Palestinian prisoners have reported being assaulted both during their detention and subsequent interrogations, according to a lawyer from the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS), who visited the prisoners in detention. 

PPS said in a statement that the three prisoners were detained from their homes on April 2, where they were assaulted by Israeli forces. 

The prisoners were identified as Ibrahim Khalil Abu Dayya, 24, from the town of Safa in the Hebron district, Muntasir Abed al-Hamid Zaaqiq, 24, from the Hebron-area town of Beit Ummar, and Saber Yahya al-Umour from the Bethlehem-area village of Tuqu. 

The three are being held in the Etzion detention center, where they said they were assaulted by Israeli authorities during interrogation. 

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an that during the detention of the three Palestinians "no violence whatsoever" had occurred.
