Detention - Mahmoud G. (14)

22:00 Jun 25 2014 Ya'bad, Jenin, West Bank

Mahmoud, 14, was detained overnight without charges.

Around 10:00 p.m., Mahmoud was returning home from his grandparents’ house when six armed soldiers began to chase him. “One soldier grabbed my leg, while another one grabbed my right arm and twisted it behind my back. They both dragged me to the side street and placed me on the ground. They were insulting me, cursing God and slapping me around,” Mahmoud recounts.

Mahmoud was bound, blindfolded and physically assaulted multiple times by soldiers during the course of his detention—kicked, stepped on, and hit on the face with a rifle stock. He was transported on the metal floor of a military jeep to Move Dotan settlement, then detained on the floor of a structure with a tin roof.

He used a bathroom with some difficulty—while still bound—and a soldier helped him drink water. When he asked, soldiers refused him food. He was detained on the floor until approximately 5:00 a.m.

Still bound and blindfolded, soldiers placed him in a military jeep and asked for his address. Mahmoud was released in his driveway without knowing of any cause for his detention.

Mahmoud notes that he was arrested by Israeli forces on 5 June 2014, and imprisoned in Megiddo for four days, before being released without bail.
