13 Year Old Arrested in Bil’in–Update

Written by admin  •  Monday, 12.09.2011, 11:17

A few days ago, I posted a video of a young child in Bil’in being arrested while working in his olive groves with his family.  In the follow up video below, the child, Fadi Al-Khatib,  talks about what happened after the last video left off, including being left blindfolded with his hands tied behind his back for hours before he ever reached prison,  being hit in the neck and kicked, threatened with greater physical abuse and torture, and finally coerced to sign a confession that he threw stones at a demonstration.

Ayed Abu Eqtaish, the representative of Defence of Children International, Palestine Section puts Fadi’s terrifying experience in context:  approximately 700 Palestinian children and teenagers are arrested each year by the Israelis.
