Israeli forces assaulted a man while on his way to Jerusalem on Tuesday night, a local committee said.
Thaer Ribhi Muhammad Awad, 23, was attacked by border guards while heading to Al-Aqsa for the holy night of Laylat al-Qadr, spokesman for the popular committee in Beit Ummar Muhammad Ayyad Awad said.
Awad suffered nerve damage to his left foot, and his right foot was also injured.
Witnesses to the attack said that an ambulance took him to a hospital in Beit Jala.
An Israeli military representative did not immediately return calls.
Meanwhile in Hebron, a video depicting off-duty soldiers dragging a Palestinian man into a house in the West Bank city of Hebron was uploaded online.
The video shows a group of at least nine men and one uniformed Israeli soldier aggressively drag a Palestinian youth down a road and into a house.
The Israeli military said in a statement that the men were off-duty soldiers who “came to the aid of the soldiers on scene.”
It says the Palestinian involved had confronted Israeli soldiers and refused to identify himself in an incident which did not appear on the video.
