Military police have launched an investigation into claims that Israeli soldiers attacked three people, a Bedouin citizen of Israel and two Palestinians, vandalizing the car of one of them, stealing his money, and leaving all three restrained.

Yousf Jilawi, a 44-year-old resident of Rahat, in southern Israel, testified to military police that he and his two Palestinian friends had to walk for about a kilometer (0.6 miles) until they met people who helped them get the cuffs off after the incident, on Monday last week.
