AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Ten Palestinian female students were hospitalized in Al-Khalil on Tuesday morning after Israeli occupation forces assaulted and beat them up for refusing to pass through metal detectors.

Medical sources in Al-Khalil government hospital said that ten female students were admitted into the hospital’s emergency ward with various injuries.

Eyewitnesses said that the IOF soldiers at the Old City of Al-Khalil tried to force the students and teachers to pass through the electronic gates but they refused prompting the soldiers to attack them and fire gas bombs at them.

In another incident in Al-Khalil, IOF soldiers arrested Ahmed Abu Hashem, the secretary general of the popular resistance committees, from his home in Beit Ummar village at dawn Tuesday.

Local sources said that special forces backed by a large number of soldiers and a reconnaissance plane stormed the home of Abu Hashem, 44, and took him away after beating him and two of his sons.

They said that the attacking forces used hounds in searching the house and wreaked havoc in it.

The sources said that clashes then took place between the inhabitants and the invading troops in which the troops used live bullets, sonic bombs, and teargas canisters, adding that the soldiers searched a number of other houses in the same village and in Yatta, south of Al-Khalil.
