JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian youth sustained bruises, on Tuesday evening, after being assaulted by the Israeli police in the Silwan town in occupied East Jerusalem.

A Ma’an reporter said that a Palestinian youth, identified as Hatem Shweiki, sustained different bruises after being assaulted by Israeli forces in the Wadi Hilweh neighborhood of Silwan.

The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan said that Israeli forces were deployed across roads leading to the town and sealed off some of them; Shweiki was reportedly passing from one of these roads in his vehicle when Israeli police forces prevented and assaulted him.

The center reported that more than 20 Israeli policemen gathered around and assaulted Shweiki with batons and by beating him up with their legs.

Shweiki was then prevented from receiving treatment.

Meanwhile, the Israeli police released engineer Arafat Amr, Head of the Islamic Museum at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, on the condition of banning him from entering the mosque for two weeks and showing up for interrogation end of April.
