On September 20, Al Haq headlined "Palestinian Man Assaulted while Unconscious by Israeli Soldiers in al-Nabi Saleh," saying:

For nearly three years, al-Nabi Saleh residents demonstrated peacefully on Fridays. At issue is expropriation of their land and water.

In response, Israel repeats what it always does. It used excessive and disproportionate force. It conducted numerous night raids and arrests.

Last week, several homes were raided. Three arrests were made. Ziad Abd-alRazq al-Tamimi, Muhammad Atiyya-al-Tamimi, and Omar Saleh Dar-Ayoub were targeted.

Rubber bullets fired at point blank range injured Omar. He lost consciousness. He was detained and assaulted while unconscious. Palestinian Red Crescent Society paramedics were prevented from providing medical aid.

On September 11 at 2:30AM, Israeli soldiers raided al-Nabi Saleh. They attacked unarmed civilians with live fire, rubber bullets, tear gas and sound bombs.

Resident were following soldiers when they arrived at the al-Khawaja petrol station. It's located at the village's entrance. They discovered soldiers hiding behind the station. 

They opened fire at point blank range. Omar was struck several times in his abdomen and legs. He was bleeding. He tried getting away but collapsed.

About 30 minutes later, a Palestinian Red Crescent Society ambulance arrived. Omar was examined. Without hospital treatment, the full extent of his injuries couldn't be determined.

Soldiers prevented the ambulance from leaving the village. They ordered the driver to remove Omar. They began punching him on the head and insulting him. He was unconscious, but they beat him anyway.

Paramedics refused to desert him. Soldiers forced them to a nearby military base. The driver, lyyas, was asked if he knew Omar. He called him his cousin. In response, he was beaten, choked, kicked, and handcuffed hands behind his back.

He was arrested for being related to the wrong man. On arrival at the military base, a doctor examined Omar briefly. He told the soldiers go ahead and arrest him.

Iyyas was dragged out of the car, blindfolded, and beaten. He was detained until 5AM, then released. He wasn't told what happened to Omar.

On September 12, he learned he was detained in Ofar Prison. He was charged with stone-throwing. Israel uses this ploy repeatedly against innocent Palestinians. Imagine being imprisoned for throwing a few stones, true or false.

Omar had three hearings. Legal help was minimal and inadequate. Information on his medical condition wasn't released. Al Haq reports often on these type incidents and others. It condemns them unequivocally.

It expressed outrage at how Omar and Iyyas were treated. Civilized societies don't treat people this way, no matter the circumstances. Who said Israel is civilized? It acts like a savage out-of-control beast.
