AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces arrested four Palestinian citizens in the West Bank on Wednesday, three of them in Al-Khalil, and assaulted a Palestinian paramedic while on duty.

Local sources said that the soldiers detained Samer Awad in Edhna village, west of Al-Khalil, who was released from Israeli prison only 20 days ago after serving eight and a half years imprisonment term.

The sources noted that the soldiers fired a sonic bomb on the house to terrorize the family before breaking into it and unleashing one of the dogs at the family members.

They said that the dog bit the mother of Awad in her hand. They said that she sustained moderate injuries, noting that the soldiers did not interfere to restrain the hound. The sources said that Awad got married only a week ago.

The soldiers confiscated a Palestinian tractor in the same village owned by Edhna municipal council.

Eyewitnesses in Beit Ummar, another village in Al-Khalil, said that the IOF troops detained two teenagers after searching their family homes.

Soldiers manning Tarqumiya military roadblock also on Wednesday assaulted a Palestinian paramedic and detained him along with his ambulance vehicle for a while before releasing him.
