HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided a Palestinian home, on Wednesday night, the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, and assaulted its residents.

Locals said that Israeli forces raided the home of Palestinian, Ghaleb Abu Sbeih, in the Old City of Hebron and thoroughly searched it, damaging most of his furniture and personal belongings.

Israeli forces assaulted two Palestinians, Shaher and Ibrahim Abu Sbeih, during the raid, for unknown reasons.

Shaher was immediately transferred to the Hebron Governmental Hospital to receive the necessary medical treatment.

Medical sources confirmed that Shaher suffered severe bruising and swelling all over his body due to being repeatedly assaulted.

Meanwhile in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood also in Hebron's Old City, Israeli forces detained a Palestinian after Israeli settlers assaulted him.

Human Rights Defenders confirmed to Ma'an that Israeli forces detained Abdullah Abu Aisha after he was assaulted by several Israeli settlers while in the neighborhood.

Abu Aisha's condition remained unknown.

The past few months, groups of Israeli settlers stormed Tel Rumeida and attacked Palestinian residents, as well as activists.

Some 800 notoriously aggressive Israeli settlers now live under the protection of the Israeli military in the Old City, surrounded by more than 30,000 Palestinians.

Palestinian residents of the Old City of Hebron face a large Israeli military presence on a daily basis, with at least 32 permanent and partial checkpoints set up at the entrances of many streets.

Additionally, Palestinians are not allowed to drive on al-Shuhada street, have had their homes and shops on the street welded shut, and in some areas of the Old City, are not permitted to walk on certain roads.

Meanwhile, Israeli settlers move freely on the street, drive cars and carry machine guns.
