04:00 Jun 1 2014 'Issawiyya, East Jerusalem

Mohammad H., 15, was detained on the accusation of throwing stones.

Around 4:00 a.m., an Israeli intelligence officer accompanied by seven soldiers woke Mohammad up. He was taken outside, handcuffed, and his eyes covered by his hat. Soldiers placed him in a a large vehicle without informing him of where he would be taken.

Upon reaching Al Mascobiyya Interrogation and Detention Center, he was verbally assaulted by soldiers. He signed a document stating that he had not been beaten by soldiers.

Mohammad met with a lawyer before interrogation and was also informed of his right to remain silent during interrogation. No lawyer or family member was present during questioning, which lasted approximately two hours. The interrogator showed Mohammad video footage of himself holding a stone. However, Mohammad maintained he only held the stone, without throwing it.

After a strip search, Mohammad appeared in court and his detention was extended. He was interrogated two more times while being detained with other youth at Al Mascobiyya IDC.

On the fourth day of detention, Mohammad was detained alone after failing to get out of bed to be counted. Mohammad describes, “I kept screaming so they could take me back to the other room. The jailer came in, grabbed me by my neck and shouted at me and ordered me to sleep. Six hours later, I was taken back to the room with the other detainees.”
