JERUSALEM, June 23,2011 (WAFA)- Israeli police are detaining Palestinian man Ahmed Ali Mahmoud, 36, in Shaare Zedek hospital west of Jerusalem, despite his injury with live bullets and bruises to his head after an assault by Israeli soldiers yesterday in Al-Issawiya town in Jerusalem.

Mahmoud’s family said his condition is stable after he was shot with a live bullet in his leg, and that he is suffering from wounds and bruises to his face, yet Israeli police continue to bind his hands and feet.

Mahmoud was hit during an Israeli raid on Al-Issawiya yesterday in which soldiers arrested his 10 year old nephew Mohamed Mahmoud Ali. His uncle, Ahmed, rushed to the scene and was shot by Israeli soldiers in his leg at close range. He was then taken away by car and beaten severely, without treatment for his leg. He finally collapsed and was taken to hospital.
