Detention - Ahmad D. (16)

05:30 Feb 2 2014 'Issawiyya, East Jerusalem

Ahmad D., 16, was arrested in the early morning on charges of throwing Molotov cocktails.

Around 5:30 a.m. an estimated 50 Israeli soldiers arrested Ahmad D. from his home. He was blindfolded, handcuffed and forced to walk 10 meters (33 ft.) to a military jeep. He was verbally and physically assaulted inside the jeep, then taken to a room in Al Mascobiyya Interrogation and Detention Center (IDC) where he was asked to kneel against the wall for about one hour.

He was strip searched, then interrogated—while still handcuffed—without the presence of a lawyer, family member, nor any explanation of his rights. The interrogator question him about his job—but Ahmad denied working, stating that he was a student in the 11th grade—and accused him of throwing Molotov cocktails.

He was verbally and physically assaulted during interrogation—slapped and punched by an interrogator carrying a pistol. Ahmad describes: “He insulted my mother and my sisters. ‘You Arabs are sons of dog. You're like a coil spring that we need to step on,’ he said. I was screaming in pain.” Ahmad denied all charges and refused to a sign five pages of Hebrew documents.

Ahmad was detained in a shared cell for 15 days, appearing in the Magistrates Court three times. On 17 February, he was released on a fine of 500 NIS and 15 days of house arrest.
