On Tuesday night, Israeli soldiers assaulted a Palestinian child from the Shu’fat refugee camp north of occupied Jerusalem in the West Bank.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers stopped and repeatedly assaulted the child, Mohammad Mamdouh Hamad, 15, causing various lacerations and bruises.

They added that the locals tried to stop the attack, but the soldiers pushed them away before moving the child to Hadassah Medical Center In Jerusalem.

The soldiers also stopped and searched many Palestinian cars in the area and interrogated many residents while inspecting their ID cards.
