Ala B., 17, was arrested on charges of throwing stones and Molotov cocktails.

Around 3:00 a.m., Israeli soldiers stormed Ala’s house and delivered a summons. In compliance with the summons, Ala reported to Salem Interrogation and Detention Center (IDC) at 9:00 a.m. in the company of his father. He was informed of his arrest but not the reason.

Ala was bound, blindfolded and detained on the floor with Jihad H. (Ref. 16N14073) until around 5:00 p.m. Despite repeated requests, they were not given food or water.

He was physically and verbally assaulted at a military camp near Barta’a checkpoint, where he was detained on the ground for two hours. He was physically assaulted a second time inside a military jeep while being transferred to Mevo Dotan military camp. Around midnight, Ala reached Megiddo Prison.

On 29 May, Ala was interrogated in Salem IDC without the presence of a family member, lawyer, or any explanation of his rights. His ankles were shackled during interrogation. Ala describes: “He threatened me and said, 'If you don't confess, I'll send you to Al Jalame Interrogation Center and they'll lock you up in cells for a long time. You'd better confess.' But I never confessed.”

He first appeared before a judge on 1 June. Nine days later, his detention was extended until the conclusion of legal proceedings.
