Palestine: Israeli soldiers invade Al-Eesawiyya, clashes reported

11th Dec 2013

IMEMC & Agencies: Monday evening, several Israeli military jeeps invaded the Al-Eesawiyya town, in occupied East Jerusalem, and broke into the home of detainee Samer Al-Eesawy; clashes have been reported.

Eyewitnesses said that the soldiers invaded the home of Tareq Al-Eesawy, and alleged they were searching for his sons Samer and Midhat, both imprisoned by Israel, and handed his son, Firas, a military warrant ordering him to head to a security base for interrogation.
Clashes have been reported between the soldiers and dozens of local youths who hurled stones and empty bottles at them, while the army fired dozens of rubber-coated metal bullets and concussion grenades.
The father said that his son, Midhat, will be released from an Israeli detention center on Tuesday, adding that he believes Israel will be trying to intimidate the family, to prevent it from celebrating the release of their son.
It is worth mentioning that Samer Al-Eesawy is expected to be released on December 23, as part of an agreement he achieved after holding a hunger strike that lasted for more than nine months.
He went on hunger strike demanding an end to his arbitrary Administrative Detention, without charges or trial.
