Israeli forces 'assault' 17-year-old Palestinian

June 27, 2014 7:49 P.M. (Updated: June 28, 2014 10:38 P.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a 17-year-old Palestinian after assaulting and injuring him in his head, face and hands, a Palestinian Prisoner’s Society lawyer said.

PPS lawyer Anan Khader, who visited the detainee, Taher Ziad Taher Aqraa, at Huwwara detention center, said that Israeli forces fired tear-gas canisters at Aqraa while he was watering his family’s plants in Qalqiliya, assaulted him with the butts of their rifles and boots, and hit him in the head, face and body.

The lawyer added that Aqraa was moved near a settlement for treatment and would later be taken for interrogation.

The director of the PPS highlighted that these assaults against Palestinians and especially minors are “barbarian” and that Israel does not respect laws or the rights of children.
