Watch: Israeli forces detain 4 teenage girls in south Hebron hills

May 28, 2014 8:23 P.M. (Updated: June 8, 2014 11:54 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Tuesday detained four Palestinian girls in the south Hebron hills after a settler accused them of stealing cherries, human rights group B'Tselem said.

The girls, aged 11 to 15, were on their way home from school with an Israeli army escort when Israeli police arrested them. They were taken to an Israeli police station in Hebron with no adult accompaniment and held for four hours until being handed over to Palestinian police and released.

"The absurdity and injustice of holding four girls on suspicion of such a minor offense is disgraceful and outrageous, especially given that the authorities systematically refrain from enforcing the law on settlers who attack these girls and their families," B'Tselem said.

International volunteers from Operation Dove filmed the incident.

Settlers routinely attack Palestinians and their property in the occupied West Bank. Over 90 percent of attacks go unpunished.
