Detention - Mohammad M. (17)

16:00 May 26 2013 Ya'bad, Jenin, West Bank

Mohammad M., 17, was arrested on charges of throwing stones.

Around 4:00 p.m., Mohammad was returning home when he was attacked by a dog. He threw a stone at the dog as a military jeep was passing by and Israeli soldiers exited the vehicle, knocking him down. When they asked why he had thrown a stone, Mohammad explained he was targeting a stray dog but soldiers did not believe him.

He was bound, blindfolded and forced onto the metal floor of a jeep, hitting his head in the process. As they travelled, one soldier held a rifle to Mohammad’s head and verbally assaulted him. Around 8:00 p.m., Mohammad arrived at an unknown location and was detained on the ground—not permitted to move or use the bathroom, nor provided with food or water—overnight.

In the morning, Mohammad was transferred to Megiddo Prison, strip searched and placed in the juvenile section.

On 28 May, Mohammad was interrogated without the presence of a lawyer, family member or any explanation of his rights. He was accused of throwing stones but Mohammad denied accusations. Mohammad signed a statement without being permitted to read it.

He first appeared before a judge on 30 May in Salem Military Court.
