October 30, 2016

A settler assaulted 6-year old Qusai Jadallah Rajabi while he was near his house in the neighborhood of Batn Al-Hawa in Silwan.

Jadallah Rajabi, the child’s father, explained to Wadi Hilweh Information Center that one of the settlers present in Batn Al-Hawa pushed his 6-year old son Qusai towards a wall and punched him on his eye for no reason when he was playing with his cousins outside their home; he had a red eye and suffered some pains.

Rajabi added that his son went home crying with clear signs of fear. It was obvious he was assaulted with clear redness around his eye; he then talked about being assaulted by a settler.

Rajabi added that his son and nephews confirmed that the settler attacked Qusai for no reason.

Rajabi also said he went to the place where his son was assaulted and found the assailant settler along with two other settlers. He asked him about the reason of assaulting his child while playing outside his home, but the settlers started shouting and threatening to use his weapon. Meanwhile, a foot patrol passed by and Qusai’s father told them about what had happened. They arrested the settler and took him to Salah Eddin Street police station.

Rajabi explained he filed a complaint in Salah Eddin Street police station regarding the assault and also took his child to the medical center to conduct the necessary check-ups. He pointed out that he had filed a complaint against the same settler 6 months ago when he assaulted him personally.
