October 12, 2013

The Magistrate court extended on Sunday the arrest of two young men; 23-year old Omar Yaser Khalayleh and 19-year old Mohammad Hashem Khalayleh until Tuesday, and released 20-year old Zeid Yaser Abed Rabbo Khalayleh and 25-year old Ra’fat Rawhi Amayreh with a bail of 1000 NIS and house arrest until Thursday. The Israeli forces arrested the four young men after midnight last Saturday after a group of extremist settlers assaulted them while being in Egged bus, line number 8. The families of the detained young men said that a number of extremists prevented the young men from riding and sitting in the bus for no reason. Another group of settlers then got on the bus from a station near Jabal Al-Mukabber and were holding pipes in their hands and used them to assault the young men in which clashes using hands broke out between the two sides. The bus driver called the police who called the ambulances to transfer the extremists to the hospitals for treatment and arrested the four young men and sprayed them with pepper gas and hit them with batons; note that the incident occurred at 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
