Committee: Israeli Soldiers Force Muslim to Drink Wine at Gunpoint

TEHRAN (FNA)- Israeli intelligence officers forced a Palestinian man from Beit Ummar to drink wine at gunpoint, a local committee spokesman said.



An Israeli military patrol stopped Muhammad Khalil Abu Dayyah, 24, from the Safa neighborhood near Beit Ummar on Tuesday evening, and forced him into a military tower at the entrance to Beit Ummar, said Muhammad Ayyad Awad, the spokesman for Beit Ummar's committee against Israel's separation wall and settlements.

Abu Dayyah was being asked to give names of young men who participate in clashes against Israeli forces in the Hebron-district town, Awad said.

When Abu Dayyah refused to cooperate with the soldiers, they brought an intelligence officer who took out a list of names of young locals and asked him to identify them, the official Palestinian Maan News Agency reported.

Abu Dayyah refused to give any information and the intelligence officer pointed a rifle at the back of his head and ordered him to drink a bottle of wine.

Awad said that after Abu Dayyah drank the bottle, he passed out for an hour. He was awoken by Israeli soldiers who then threw him out of the military installation, he added.

Locals who witnessed Abu Dayyah being taken away by Israeli forces took him home after the incident, confirming that he appeared under the influence and smelling of alcohol.

The consumption of alcohol is prohibited in Islam.
