July 17, 2017

The 19-year old Ala’ Tawfiq Abu Tayeh was injured in the abdominal area during violent clashes that broke out in the neighborhood of Ein Al-Lozeh in Silwan in solidarity with Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Tawfiq Abu Tayeh explained that his son underwent a surgical operation at Al-Maqased hospital in Jerusalem where the doctors were able to stop the bleeding. He still needs more operations and is currently in “critical” but “stable” condition as explained by the doctors.

Abu Tayeh added that his son was heading home after visiting his sisters when he was injured.

Abu Tayeh explained that the occupation authorities continue to target the neighborhood of Ein Al-Lozeh constantly through daily raids and targeting locals with rubber bullets and sound grenades; live ammunition was used on Monday.

Abu Tayeh family said the soldiers raid the family’s houses from time to time. Few days ago, the soldiers raided one the family’s houses and assaulted the residents, beat them and pushed them.

Minutes after the arrival of Ala’ Abu Tayeh to Al-Maqased hospital, the occupation forces raided the hospital and stormed into the operation rooms and emergency department. After withdrawing from the hospital, they were stationed at the gates.
