He added, after asking them, “As they sprayed pepper gas towards me indiscriminately, I fell to the ground, and my colleagues tried to help me, but they couldn’t get them with gas as well.”
Vesfoss added to the center that the settlers attacked him with knives and blades, and managed to hit him with his head as he was stabbed in the back, which led to the tearing of his coat. They also tried to stab him in the neck.
Fasfous explained that his colleagues who were present at the scene called the police and ambulance, and he was taken to the hospital, and his head was sown.
Phosphus denounced the ill-treatment he had given during his hospitalization, where the therapist asked him, “What have you done to them to stab you in your head?”
