The Palestinian security services have been arresting and summoning hundreds of activists for interrogations in the West Bank for many days.
Many activists shared videos of the arrest campaigns, some of which included assault, beating, and dragging the detainee or his family onto the floor.
The arrest campaigns included released prisoners, mosque imams, teachers, journalists, human rights and political activists.
The family of the released prisoner, Hussam Eldin Al-Hour, accused members of the security services of assaulting them in their house at dawn on Monday, during the arrest of their son, in Surif town, south of the West Bank.
The family said, “Raneen Al-Hour, the daughter of the released prisoner, suffered a fracture in her foot and injuries, as a result of the assault on her during her father’s arrest.”
Hossam’s father said, “The intelligence service tried to arrest my son nearly two months ago, after raiding his house, breaking the door, and searching it.”
He added that “he was not at home at the time, and refused to go to the interrogation, as he would be arrested without any reason or charge every time he goes there.”
He continued: “Yesterday at dawn, a joint force of the security services stormed the house, beat Hussam, and arrested him with his son, and when his daughter Raneen tried to intervene to prevent her father from being beaten, she was electrocuted, fell on the ground before her foot was squashed under the wheels of a military vehicle”.
He stated that his son was arrested for more than seven years in the occupation prisons, and has been subjected to many arrests and summons by the Palestinian Authority.
He also pointed out that his grandson, Abdul Rahman Haddush, has been detained for 15 days in the prisons of the PA and is currently on a hunger strike.
Human rights groups have documented 409 violations of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank since last October, the most prominent of which was the murder of Mohamed Al-Banna.
