IPNOT PICTURE OF THE DAY March 27th 2017: YOUTH BEATEN, DETAINED AT HAWARA CHECKPOINT

Our picture of the day for and from Monday March 27th show Israel’s occupation forces attacking a Palestinian youth and threatening another Palestinian at the Hawara / Huwwara checkpoint south of Nablus on the occupied West Bank.

Israel’s occupation soldiers attacked the youth walking near the checkpoint and arrested him after an illegal Israeli settler ‘suddenly fled the scene’.

Israeli occupation claimed that the youth had a ‘sharp object’ and would have supposedly tried to commit ‘a stabbing attack’.

According to eye-witnesses, after Israeli occupation soldiers had the youth tied up, he was beaten so that he started to bleed.

The youth’s identity is yet not known to us. His survival is somewhat exceptional, as Israeli occupation forces’ soldiers have regularly killed Palestinians at the Hawara checkpoint in recent years.
