Ma’an  -  13 September 2009


A group of Israeli settlers entered the central West Bank village of Ras Karkar and assaulted residents, Palestinian police said in their daily report Sunday.

The reports catalog Israeli violations in the West Bank on a daily basis and are a recent initiative of the forces. According to the document, Israeli forces arrived in Ras Karkar shortly after the settlers attacked and started hurling tear gas canisters at residents, then physically assaulted two young men identified as Ibrahim Dawood and Mahmoud Salhiyya. Israeli troops withdrew without making any arrests.

By region, the following Israeli violence was recorded:


Israeli forces raided the city and its refugee camp, handing out summonses to a dozen residents ordering them to appear before an Israeli intelligence unit. Invading soldiers also broke into the home of Aamir Abu Lifa from Tulkarem refugee camp for an alleged inspection.


Israeli troops detained 23-year-old Muhammad Ratib Ad-Dik from the town of Kafr Ad-Dik. Earlier in the day, Israeli settlers pelted Palestinian cars with stones on the road to Al-Khan Al-Ahmar.

A second troop of Israeli soldiers entered the Ayin As-Sultan Refugee Camp, where they tossed the home of Faysal Al-Basha as well as the home of his father. Soldiers said they were looking for the Al-Basha brothers Majdi and Yazad.
