The occupation forces arrested on Tuesday afternoon a girl and her father after raiding their home in the neighborhood of Ein Al-Lozeh in Silwan.

Wadi Hilweh Information Center (WHIC) was informed by witnesses that the occupation forces raided the house of Mohammad Fahmi Farroukh in Ein Al-Lozeh, searched it and damaged its contents before arrested Mohammad and his 15-year old daughter Hiba.

Mohammad’s father explained to WHIC that the forces along with intelligence personnel and police dogs raided his son’s house and prevented anyone from entering. They assaulted 14-year old Yazan Farroukh and injured his son’s wife with fractures in her toe; she was transferred to the hospital for treatment. 

Farroukh added that the forces damaged the house’s contents and arrested his son Mohammad and granddaughter Hiba without presenting a search warrant or a warrant of arrest.
