BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday reportedly assaulted a Palestinian family in the southern West Bank city of Hebron during an attempt to detain their son, according to official Palestinian Authority (PA)-owned Wafa news agency.

Wafa reported that soldiers stationed at the entrance of the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron’s Old City attempted to arrest Muhammad al-Muhtaseb, 27, when al-Muhtaseb’s father and mother intervened.

Israeli soldiers then reportedly assaulted the parents, causing the mother to be sent to the hospital for treatment.

Meanwhile, clashes erupted between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians near the Tariq Bin Ziad school, also in the Old City of Hebron, Wafa reported.

Soldiers fired stun grenades and rubber-coated steel bullets at Palestinians.
