Jerusalem Police on Tuesday arrested an Arab man in his 30s, suspected of severely abusing his two daughters - aged 10- and 12-years old - over the last two months. According to the police report, the man beat the two girls repeatedly with a walking stick, and put them into a bathtub filled with water, before giving them electric shocks, causing burns and other trauma. The man has admitted to beating the girls, but denied electrocuting them, and the girls have been taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital. The investigation is ongoing.
