Morning arrests of Shyoukhi brothers in Silwan

06:00 Oct 3 2011 Silwan

Silwan, Jerusalem (SILWANIC) -- Brothers Mansour and Musa’ab Shyoukhi were arrested by Israeli forces for unknown reasons on Monday, 3 October. Mansour was reported to have been beaten by settlers prior to arrest.

20-year old Mansour was attacked by settlers on the evening of Tuesday, 2 October, as he walked home on Cemetery Street near the Old City’s Golden Gate to his house in Al-Hara al-Wasta neighborhood. Mansour would later tell relatives that the attack was so violent that he didn’t believe he would survive.

Several hours later in the early morning of Monday, Israeli forces stormed the Shyoukhi family home and arrested Mansour on the pretext of throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at the nearby settlement. Forces returned later that day to arrest his 18-year old brother Musa’ab on identical charges.

The Shyoukhi family has suffered extensively at the hands of the Israeli authorities, having experienced multiple arrests and house raids. The mother of the family was also arrested several months ago.

The Shyoukhi family’s story will be published by Silwanic in the near future.
