QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Israeli soldiers assaulted a Palestinian youth in the northern West Bank late Tuesday, his father said.

Abd al-Latif al-Raee told Ma'an that he and his 19-year-old son Adham were walking in their privately-owned field in southern Qalqiliya when Israeli troops attacked the young man.

"They assaulted my son before my eyes," al-Raee said. The soldiers "dragged him between bushes where they brutally beat him."

After detaining Adham for more than an hour, the soldiers released him, al-Raee said, adding that his son was bleeding badly and that he was assaulted for no reason.

Al-Raee said he filed a complaint at a military liason office.

A spokeswoman for the Israeli army did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.
