DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:36 A.M)- A three year old Palestinian boy, was today detained briefly, by Israeli forces. The Israeli regimes border police held the child for a few mins, before eventually releasing the petrified child to his father.
Ra’ad Abu Armila, bystander in Hebron (Al-Khalil), who witnessed the event, told Haaretz news correspondents, that border policemen had cursed at the little boy and his mother minutes before the incident took place.
Border police claim that the child was sent towards them with a screwdriver and to “throw stones”, in order to make them look bad. They called this a “provocation”.
An Israeli surveillance cameras video, was later released, showing the three year old, run towards the police after some sort of verbal attack by the police. The video clearly shows no stones were thrown, however the video is not clear enough to see wether the child has a screwdriver.
Human rights activists have accused Israeli border police of being inhumane, as a three year old child could not possibly do any harm.
