Israeli soldiers abducted, Monday evening, a young man and assaulted many journalists and residents during a nonviolent procession against the escalating Israeli violations in and around the Ibrahimi Mosque, in Hebron city, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

The Palestinians nonviolent marched towards the Ibrahimi Mosque in the center of Hebron city while carrying Palestinian flags and calling for ending the escalating Israeli violations.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers assaulted the nonviolent protesters when they reached the gates of the holy site and abducted a young man after constantly clubbing him.

The soldiers later released the young man before he was rushed in a civilian car to Hebron governmental hospital; he was hospitalized due to various lacerations and bruises.

The young man would be undergoing various tests and checkups to ensure he is not suffering internal wounds.

The soldiers also attacked many journalists to prevent them from documenting the unfolding events and prevented the Palestinians from entering the holy site to pray.

The procession was held after the Israeli army destroyed and cut the stairs of the historic holy site in preparation for installing an elevator for the Israeli colonizers.
