On Saturday, Israeli forces severely beat a young man in the Al-Sahla neighborhood of the city of Hebron.

The Palestinian Wafa News Agency reported that Israeli forces beat Ibrahim Al-Rajabi while he was walking with his children in Al-Sahla neighborhood in the center of Hebron.

The troops beat al-Rajabi with rifle butts and helmets, causing him injuries and bruises. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The attack comes a day after Israeli troops injured over a hundred Palestinian worshipers outside the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.

Twenty Palestinians and four Israelis have been killed since the beginning of April, in an escalation of violence that has included lockdowns of many Palestinian towns and villages, road closures, over a hundred Palestinians abducted by Israeli forces, and many more injured by Israeli forces invading Palestinian areas and opening fire on residents.
