An 11-year-old Palestinian girl with special needs has been rushed to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem to treat her fractured jaw after being attacked by Israeli soldiers with a stun grenade.

Manwar Burqan was gathered with her family near Damascus Gate in occupied East Jerusalem, to mark the ascension of the Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him), known as Israa and Miraj, whenl the occupation forces used heavy handed measures to disperse the Palestinians.

The stun grenade was thrown at Manwar, while occupation forces also sprayed skunk water at the crowd of Palestinians who could be seen running in an effort to avoid the foul water.

Manwar is deaf and attends a special needs school in the city.

Additionally, videos from the incident also show a 12-year-old girl being dragged across the ground and hit with a baton by armed Israeli soldiers and then strangled with it.

Palestinian news agency, Wafa, also reported on Israeli forces shoving a Palestinian man’s head onto the pavement and placing a knee on his neck, suffocating him before arresting him.

Around 25 Palestinians were injured during the brutal attacks and twenty Palestinians were arrested by occupational forces, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent.
