JERUSALEM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces attacked a Palestinian woman and her teenage daughter in the Wadi Hilweh quarter south of the Old City of Jerusalem on Thursday, Palestinians in Silwan neighborhood said.

Director of the Silwan-based Wadi Hilweh Information Center Jawad Siyam told Ma’an that Israeli officers broke into the home of Umm Kalawoon al-Tawil and “brutally” beat her and her 15-year-old daughter Layla.

Siyam highlighted that Israeli officers continued to beat al-Tawil while they dragged her out of her apartment to a playground in the neighborhood until she passed out.

Fistfights broke out between local residents and Israeli officers while an ambulance evacuated al-Tawil to al-Maqasid hospital in Jerusalem for treatment.

An Israeli police spokesman said he was unaware of any detentions in the area.

So the spokesman was aware soldiers beat up the women and her daughter? And he was oke with it? But there was no arrest. OMG what a lunatic "country".

The IDF is foul and loathsome, and Israel itself is an entirely illegitimate state. Truth be told, I honestly believe everyone in the world clearly realizes this, with the exception of the world's Jewish population and North America's neo-cons and other brainwashed dupes.

All we can hope for Israel is what so many have hoped for over generations, that they will get theirs. With its recent appalling decision to allow "sky's the limit" political contributions, the US Supreme Court has enabled AIPAC, Adelson, Saban, et al. to put their choice of candidates in office. Thus, so long as a California Senator can repeat Bibi's description of Israel as "The Only Democracy in The Middle East", it is unlikely Israel will see the light and cease behaving like Nazis lite.

What do you mean by Israel is an illegitimate state? Do you even think before you type ? Israel legally declared independence on the land allotted to her in the partition plan after cessation of the mandate. You don't have to agree with Israel's policies, but stop spreading lies. And no, the whole world doesn't see Israel as an illegitimate state, just hateful people do.

israel is not legitimate morally. It does not understand the term freedom of religion or the term freedom of speech. Only Jews have rights the rest are tolerated when an israeli doesn't decide to murder them. I am very proud to not be israeli.

Seeing this, I wonder how many people are still proud to be Israeli, especially those who have been born in the country. Sad story.

To daphna #4: 'what was the reason for the beating ?' The reason is that the woman and her daughter were gentiles. Why do you ask?

To @Paul #5: 'What do you mean by Israel is an illegitimate state?' A lot could be meant. Israel is an illegitimate state because it exists in violation of its own commitments. Its an illegitimate state because it ignores international law. It's an illegitimate state because every element of the justification offered for its creation is a falsehood. It's an illegitimate state because of its criminal behavior and aggression. Hard to fit it all in one post, actually.

To Susan Shaw #7: 'Seeing this, I wonder how many people are still proud to be Israeli, especially those who have been born in the country. ' What's distasteful is contemplating the moral nature of those who ARE proud to be Israeli.
