Palestinian security sources from Hebron old city today said that Israeli soldiers have brutally attacked a Palestinian youth, and then forced him to drink gasoline.
Sources said that the soldiers handcuffed Majdi Al-Muhtaseb (21), kidnapped and dragged him to Al-Turba neighborhood in Tel Rumeida, threw him on the ground and started beating and kicking him for no reason whatsoever.
According to Majdi’s family, the soldiers asked him if he wanted water, and when he said yes, one of them pretended to be helping him drink water. When he realized that it was gasoline and not water, the soldier forced him to drink out of it.
Issam Al-Muhtaseb, father of the youth, said that IOF have detained his son and ripped his own ID card. Then they hit him on his back and stomach very savagely.
After the soldiers let him go, the youth’s father took him to ‘Aalia hospital in Hebron where he suffered from severe pains and underwent medical tests.
Majdi was moved back to his house, but still suffers from back-pain.
