AL-KHALIL (HEBRON): Israeli soldiers arrest


On the night of 14 April, Israeli
soldiers in Hebron took a thirteen-year-old boy from his house, blindfolded and
handcuffed him and closed him inside a nearby checkpoint container for twenty

The soldiers then walked him, still
blindfolded and handcuffed, to another checkpoint a block away and shut him
into that checkpoint box. After about fifteen minutes they walked him to an
Israeli Army Base. Internationals who tried to follow were stopped by soldiers
who called them “nazi pigs”. Several adult armed settlers were also present and
were aggressive and threatening (video here).

After another fifteen minutes
soldiers put the boy in a military jeep and drove him to Checkpoint 56, and
released him to Palestinian officials on the other side.

The report Occupied
, released last week by Christian Peacemaker Teams, documents
violations of the human rights of children in occupied Hebron in recent months.
