Report: Israel soldiers beat, abuse Palestinian child prisoners



An Israeli solider arrests a Palestinian teen on 17 June 2017

The Palestinian Committee of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs said the Israeli army has beaten and severely abused Palestinian children during their arrest and interrogation.

In a report issued yesterday, the committee said it has documented a testimony by Palestinian child prisoner, Mohammed Khamis, 17 from the town of Beit Ummar in occupied Hebron, who described the torture and humiliation he endured in Israeli interrogation canters.

Khamis outlined details of his arrest, pointing out that he was arrested after he was attacked by a number of soldiers who had severely beaten him on the stomach and his abdomen.

“At one point, an Israeli soldier grabbed my mouth and violently forced it to the other side, while the rest of the soldiers continued to beat me,” Khamis said.

Later, I was taken into a military jeep where the soldiers did not stop beating me on the head with the butts of their rifles.

According to Khamis, Israeli interrogators at the Kiryat Arba detention centre shouted at him and cursed him to force him to confess to the charges against him.

The committee’s report has also documented abuse including severe beating by the Israeli forces against the following minors: Mu’adh Al-Madhoun, 17 from Jabalia refugee camp in Gaza, Muhammad Al-Jabri, 15 from Al-‘Arroub refugee camp, Ayman Hamzawi, 19 from Askar refugee camp near Nablus, Anees Sabahiyeh, 18 from Al Fawwar refugee camp in Hebron, Mohammed Shreidi, 17 from Tubas governorate, Walid Al Ashqar, 26 from Nablus and Omar Shehada, 25 from Al-Arroub refugee camp in Hebron.

This is a beautiful church so once again thank you to the pastor for allowing us to use this is really beautiful and thank you all for being here tonight and and for caring enough to take the time and listen and participate and be active I always begin my remarks with a disclaimer and that disclaimer is this if anybody here came hoping to hear a balanced presentation then they're going to be sorely disappointed I say this because a lot of things that you're about to hear tonight are difficult to hear and also because I don't believe that a balanced presentation on this topic is possible anybody that cares enough to speak about this probably has a very strong opinion one way or the other almost everybody has feelings and strong emotions on this issue one way or the other for me it's deeply personal and the issue itself is not a balanced issue there is no balance in this issue so therefore I say this because there cannot be a balanced presentation on this and I think if anybody claims that their presentation is balanced they're either misleading themselves or the misleading of their audience this whole issue of Israel and Palestine is covered in so much myth and there's so much there's so much double standard when people talk about this issue and I'll give you two examples

Don't know if you heard Bibi Netanyahu speech at the United Nations I heard it not live but after he actually delivered it and he began and he began it with probably the two most striking examples of myth and double standard and he began by talking about the right of return of the Jews to their ancient homeland and of course the Jews that returned so-called returned to their homeland were not exactly the the same Jews who were expelled from their homeland right because these were expelled a couple of thousand years before that these were not their descendants either because they this is business has been a very long time so these are people the people that actually came back so to speak are people that claim some kind of a heritage some kind of a connection a relationship to the ancient Hebrews and they claimed that they had the right to return to their homeland and this was this is what Zionism was about and this is expected this was you know accepted by the world as the right they had the right to return now if we talk about the right of return of one nation you'd expect that there would be if we accept it as a principle than
