HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Sunday dismantled a protest tent in Hebron set up by relatives of Palestinian detainee Mahmoud Salih al-Sharha, who is suffering from cancer.
The Palestinian Prisoner Club in Hebron said five Israeli military vehicles raided the protest tent, which was set up in front of the al-Sharha family home in Hebron.
Israeli forces dismantled the tent and assaulted several protesters, the group said.
Al-Sharha was diagnosed with a tumor two years ago and has still not received any treatment.
He has been jailed 11 years and is serving a 22-year sentence.
