OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– 27-year-old Mohamed al-Shahed was badly injured when a group of Israeli border soldiers physically assaulted him outside the post office building in east Jerusalem. Shahed, who works at the post office, explained that he went out of the building on Thursday morning to take a break when several border soldiers suddenly gathered around him and embarked on harassing and beating him, with no reason. “At first, their number was eight and then they became 20 soldiers. They severely beat me all over my body and two of them, who were cops, embarked on hitting me with their rifle butts,” he said. He added that when the manager of the post office showed up along with Israeli policemen from Salahuddin police station, the soldiers escaped. As a result of the attack, Shahed suffered from bruises all over his body, painful swellings in his eyes, slight injuries in his face and neck, and severe pains in his right leg.
