Arrests in Beit Ommar

17 March 2013

On the 17th of March in the early morning the Israeli Occupation Forces entered the Village of Beit Ommar and raided three Palestinian homes arresting three young men from their family houses.
The young men taken in the early morning included Ali Ahmad Rasheed Sabarnah 18 years old, Ali Saeed Sabarnah 18 years old and Jehad Naser Khlayel 17 years. Following the arrests, clashes between youths of the village and the IOF broke out. In the town of Beit Ommar when a resident is threatened or apprehended by the IOF many of the youth resist the soldiers in solidarity with their community. The soldiers shot a large amount of tear gas, sound bombs and live rubber coated bullets at the youth, causing many injuries.
