RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained two brothers from the town of Deir Nitham in northwest Ramallah on Saturday morning in a predawn raid.

The detainees' father Abd al-Hafith Tamimi told Ma'an that Israeli forces ransacked his home in the early dawn hours and detained his sons Qadri, 20 and Mustafa, 27.

Mustafa, he said, is an officer in the Palestinian liaison department in Hebron region.

Tamimi, who suffers from serious health troubles, highlighted that the Israeli soldiers "terrified" his family and "brutally assaulted his sons" before they detained them.

An Israeli military spokeswoman told Ma'an, however, that there were "no arrests" in Deir Netham overnight.

Israeli authorities detained Tamimi's third son Adham two months ago.

Israeli forces handed a demolition warrant to Tamimi in mid-February under the pretext that his house was built without a license in area classified as "C" according to the Oslo Accords.

Area C makes up about 61 percent of the occupied West Bank and is under full Israeli military control. Israel permits Palestinians to build on less than 1 percent of Area C land, according to UN figures.

Under the Oslo Accords, Area C was to be gradually transferred to Palestinian control within five years. But Israel has refused to withdraw its forces from the territory, citing security concerns and the absence of a final peace agreement.

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.

Of course...Israel does not abide by and laws. They continue to spit in the face of the international community and "agreements" such as the Oslo Accords. They believe they are above the law. That's where fanaticism and fascism takes you...to very dark places. One day Israelis will realize they are undermining their own long term security and existence with their illegal and brutal actions for over 70 years.
