Father: Israeli interrogator threatened son with rape

JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – An Israeli court on Thursday released a Palestinian teenager from Isawiya in East Jerusalem on bail.

The father of 13-year-old Ismail Tawfiq Muheisin says he paid a bail of 1,000 shekels and signed a third-party bail of 5,000 shekels.

The boy, added his father, is barred from approaching a hill near Hadassah Hospital, and he is not allowed to talk to his friends who were accused of arson for three months.

Speaking to Ma’an, the father alleged that an Israeli interrogator threatened to “bring a Sudanese man to rape the boy” in order to force him to reveal information.

He says the judge in the case ordered an investigation into the claim.

Israeli police detained six teenagers from Isawiya and accused them of setting fire to straw in hilltops in the village.
