Israeli forces raided a hospital in East Jerusalem late Saturday and detained a young Palestinian man, witnesses told Ma'an.
Locals said Israeli forces searched the outer square of the al-Maqasid hospital in the al-Tur neighborhood before storming the hospital's emergency room and detaining a young man who was escorting an elderly woman.
The officers beat the young man "brutally" before taking him into custody, the sources told Ma'an.
The young Palestinian's name was not immediately made available.
The Palestinian news site Safa reported that Israeli forces claimed the man had hurled a Molotov cocktail at them and fled to the hospital.
The hospital administration denounced the Israeli raid which they described as a "barbarian attack" that violated the sanctity of the hospital. more
