Israeli soldiers assaulted, on Saturday at dawn, two young Palestinian men in the northern West Bank city of Jenin, causing many cuts and bruises and detained them for more than eight hours.

Media sources said the soldiers stopped the two Palestinians in the Sa’adiyya neighborhood in Jenin, while they were riding a motorcycle, and repeatedly assaulted then before confiscating their motorcycle.

They added that the soldiers detained the two young men for more than eight hours, while repeatedly assaulting and clubbing them.

The two young men were later released at the al-Jalama military roadblock, installed on Palestinian lands northeast of Jenin.
