Israeli soldiers assaulted, Sunday, a Palestinian man near Salfit, in central West Bank, causing various wounds.

Eyewitnesses said the soldiers assaulted Nabil Saqer Obeid, from Kifl Hares town, north of Salfit, causing various cuts and bruises, before detaining him.

They added that Obeid was walking near Kifl Hares Junction, close to the illegal Ariel colonialist block, northwest of Salfit, when the soldiers stopped him, and started assaulting him while inspecting his ID card.

The soldiers then detained the man, after alleging he attempted to stab them, but released him shortly afterward.
