The Israeli police arrested four young men, accusing them of beating an extremist settler who broke into Iyad Hallaq’s condolence tent to provoke the family

Occupied Jerusalem (QNN)- The Israeli police on Monday announced arresting four Palestinian young men between 18-25 years old in occupied Jerusalem, accusing them of allegedly beating an Israeli extremist settler, who broke into the condolence tent of Iyad Hallaq and tried to provoke the bereaved family.

In a statement issued this morning, the police stated that it arrested four young men, accusing them of beating the right-wing settler Yehudah Glick.

Three of the young men will be sent to court on Wednesday while one will be tried today.

The incident goes back to June 4th, when Glick broke into the condolence tent of Iyad Hallaq in Wadi Al Jouz in the occupied city but the bereaved family evicted him after beating him.

Israeli media said Glick was sent to a hospital after being beaten by the family of Hallaq.

Immediately after the incident, Israeli forces cracked down on the neighborhood for several days and arrested dozens of young men.

Yehuda Glick is a right-wing leader and former MK. He leads daily raids into Al Aqsa mosque, provoking thousands of Palestinians throughout the occupied country.

Iyad Hallaq is an autistic young Palestinian, who was executed in cold blood by the Israeli police while he was heading to his school.
