Israeli fanatics attacked, Tuesday, a 13-year-old child, and his 10-year-old sister, as they were walking towards the Al-Aqsa Mosque, to participate in a summer camp.The Wadi Hilweh Information Center in Silwan (Silwanic), said Mohammad Ayyoub Abu Hadwan, 13, and his sister Israâ, 10, were approached by two extremist Israeli settlers, who chased them and violently assaulted them, causing various cuts and bruises.
Resident Ayyoub Abu Hadwan told Silwanic that the fanatics struck and beat his two children, and that the Police arrived at the scene and attempted to kidnap his son, instead of apprehending the assailants.
He added that local residents intervened, and told the Police the children were assaulted without any provocation on their part.
The police told the childrenâs father they intend to contact him for questioning.
Abu Hadwan said his family has been subject to frequent assaults in the Sharaf neighborhood, as it is the closest road from Wadi Hilweh in Silwan to the Old City.
In addition, Abu Hadwan said that, nearly a month ago, Israeli extremists chased his wife and daughters before beating them up, and attempted to cut them with sharp objects.
