A storm in the Palestinian Authority following a suspected group rape of a tourist from Poland by five men from the villages of Thir near Mount Gilo and Na'alin near Modi'in Illit. It is suspected that the five raped the tourist and physically assaulted a young Palestinian, a tourist guide from the town of Obeida, who accompanied her, in the mountainous area of ​​Bethlehem governorate, between Beit Jala and Batir.

The five reportedly tied the Palestinian young man to a chair and then committed themselves to the woman. A Batir resident told "Arab 48" website that "the group rape took place after midnight. Four of the rapists are from Na'alin and one from Batir." He said the rape occurred in a remote area from the surrounding villages. He added: "The group rape was discovered only a few days later."

Apparently, the group rape took place in Area C, which is under Israeli security and civilian control, and therefore the Palestinians cannot investigate the scene.

"A civilian has filed a complaint that he and a tourist from Poland were attacked by people impersonating security personnel and attacking them," Palestinian Police spokesman Louis Zarikat said. "Four suspects have been arrested after civilian reports." Zarikat added that "the suspects admitted to being attributed to them and were identified by the complainant. They were arrested and the case was forwarded to the Prosecutor's Office."
