Israeli occupation forces violently detained two Palestinian girls from inside an ambulance in the Hebron district of the southern occupied West Bank.

A witness told Ma'an that he saw Israeli soldiers forcing two teenage girls out of the ambulance at gunpoint. As they resist and begin screaming, one soldier calls for backup as the other climbs into the vehicle. Few more troops show up to pull the girls out.

"A soldier handcuffed me and took me to the Al-Debwaya police station", said Mohamed al-Tawil, a young Palestinian man with Down syndrome, to Anadolu Agency on Thursday.

The video footage caused outrage on social media.

PPS said the total number of Palestinians detained by Israeli forces since US President Donald Trump chose to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, rose to 430. Trump's decision, which envisions relocating the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in six-months' time, led the Palestinian political and militant group Hamas to declare an intifada, while Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas warned Wednesday that if the decision wasn't reversed, Palestine would withdraw from all previous agreements with Israel.
