Silwan (In Palestine Today)- Israeli occupation forces arrested today a Palestinian young man in the neighborhood of Ras Al-Amoud in Silwan, after assaulting and brutally beating him.
According to Wadi Hilweh Information Center, the occupation forces arrested Adam Qaraeen,18 years old, after the Israeli undercover unit (Musta’ribeen) assaulted and brutally beat him in the neighborhood of Ras Al-Amoud in Silwan.
The center said that Adam was transferred from the investigation center to the hospital for treatment after being assaulted and beaten yesterday, causing him deep scars and wounds.
In recent weeks and months, Israel’s undercover Special Forces units have increased their activities against the Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.
The units are responsible for the arrest and assassination of Palestinian resistance members wanted by the Israeli occupation authorities.
The term Mista’arvim is derived from the Arabic word Musta’rib, meaning a non-Arab wanting to integrate with the Arabs; Musta’ribeen is the plural.
Members of these units are trained to know the Palestinian area in which they operate, the dialects spoken there and the names of well-known families. This helps them when they infiltrate a Palestinian town, either to gather intelligence, to arrest wanted persons or, sometimes, to carry out assassinations.
