Waleed L., 14, was arrested on charges of throwing stones at an Israeli settler’s car.

Around 8:00 p.m., Waleed was arrested by Israeli soldiers after reportedly throwing one stone at a car in Ma'ale Shomeron settlement. Waleed was blindfolded, bound at the wrists with a single plastic cord and transported by military jeep to Ariel Police Station, arriving around 10:00 p.m.

He was permitted to drink water and use the bathroom before interrogation which proceeded without a reading of his rights nor any legal guardian or counsel present. Waleed describes: “He interrogated me for about an hour. He was shouting and pounding the table to intimidate me. I confessed to throwing one stone.”

Waleed signed a statement in Hebrew without knowing its contents. Although there was a translator in the room, the document was not translated for him.

Waleed was again blindfolded, bound and transported to Huwara Interrogation and Detention Center, where he was detained until 10:00 a.m. the following morning. Subsequently, he was transferred to Megiddo Prison, arriving around noon. There, he was strip searched and detained in the juvenile section.

He first appeared before a judge in Salem Military Court on 9 March and on 20 March, Waleed pled guilty to throwing stones.
