HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers brutally attacked a Palestinian man at an army checkpoint near Hebron on Saturday evening, medics said.

Israeli soldiers stopped Mahmoud Al-Battat, 19, at around 7 p.m. at a checkpoint near Ad-Dhahiriya in the southern West Bank as he returned from work in Israel, medical officials told Ma'an.

Soldiers beat him until he fainted, director of operations at the Palestinian Red Crescent Nasser Al-Qabaja said.

Al-Battat recovered consciousness at around 11 p.m. and phoned his family.

After receiving the call, relatives said they searched for two hours before they found him, and took him to a medical center in Ad-Dhahiriya.

From the medical center, doctors said he should be transferred to hospital, and he was taken by ambulance to a public hospital in Hebron, where medics said he had bruises across his body.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said the army was "not familiar" with the incident.

I want tell: tries for peace should be all tried. If it does not go than war is on head but not war as you tried these decades. Middle East war where you will ask all Muslims to take part or you will all stop take their food which just prolong your pain. Try up to September than go ahead

I post stories like this all the time on Facebook and get almost no responses. If I post a story about Saudi Arabia's mistreatment of women or other type of discrimination, I get lots of responses. Israeli military or settler violence against Palestinians seems to be invisible to Americans. Selective outrage.

To Peter Beck #3 'I post stories like this all the time on Facebook and get almost no responses...' Tag the story 'Arabs beat Jew' or the like. Then go on to relate the actual story. Rub their noses in it!
