In pictures: A woman is injured in the neighbourhood of Wadi Hilweh after she was assaulted
A Jerusalemite woman lost consciousness and was injured with bruises after the Israeli forces assaulted her in Silwan. Wadi Hilweh Information Center was informed that an Israeli force broke in the house of Khaled Tawil in the neighbourhood and started searching the house and damaging its contents without presenting a search warrant. During the search, the forces provoked the residents and took Um Qalawoon Tawil outside the house and dragged her on the ground for 40 meters and then took her to “Wadi Hilweh playground”. The Center added that the forces took Um Qalawoon to the playground and detained her in a corner where she was assaulted and severely beat until she lost consciousness. During the assault, altercations using hands broke out between the forces and the residents; note that Um Qalawoon 15-year old daughter, Laila, was also assaulted. The residents explained that the “David’s Star” ambulance arrived nearly an hour after being informed of an emergency and upon arrival, they refused to treat her under the pretext of “video recording using cell phones and transferring the pictures to terrorists” and they left the area afterwards. They came back 15 minutes later but the Palestinian Red Crescent had already arrived and started treating Um Qalawoon.
