February 8, 2017

The occupation police extended on Sunday night the arrest of Jawad Siam, director of Wadi Hilweh Information Center, until Monday to continue interrogating him on charges of “assaulting policemen” during a raid on the neighborhood of Wadi Hilweh.

Wadi Hilweh Information Center explained that Siam was arrested on Wednesday afternoon after being assaulted and severely beaten along with four other young men during an occupation forces’ raid on the neighborhood of Wadi Hilweh to search one of the houses. The forces closed the road and randomly assaulted the locals in the street.
