On Saturday, Israeli soldiers abducted two young men and assaulted one in occupied Jerusalem, in the West Bank.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers stopped the two young men in an alley in Jerusalem’s Old City and examined their ID cards while interrogating them.

They added that the soldiers started pushing one of the young men before repeatedly assaulting him, causing cuts and bruises.

The soldiers also forced the Palestinians to leave the area and closed several alleys in the Old City.
