Detention - Tamer Q. (17)

03:00 Jun 26 2013 Qalqilya, West Bank

Tamer Q., 17, was arrested on charges of throwing stones at Israeli military jeeps.

Around 3:00 a.m., Tamer was sitting in his driveway when another youth threw a stone at Israeli military jeeps—which had come to arrest Amir Z. (Ref. 16N13054) and Mahmoud H. (Ref.16N13052)—then sat next to Tamer. The jeeps stopped and the two boys fled but soldiers threw a sound bomb at them.

Soldiers bound, blindfolded and forced Tamer to lie on the floor of a metal jeep. Tamer describes: “It was really painful sitting on the metal floor with my hands tied behind my back. The jeep was traveling really fast and did not stop on bumps, and my body kept going up and down. Soldiers were shouting at me. They also kicked and hit me.”

At Qedumim military camp, Tamer was detained on the ground until morning then interrogated for about half an hour, without the presence of a lawyer, family member or any explanation of his rights. Tamer denied throwing stones at the military jeeps but admitted to throwing stones two months previously.

He was detained outside in hot conditions without food or water and denied bathroom access. Around noon, Tamer was transported to Huwara Interrogation and Detention Center where he was strip searched and detained overnight. The following day, Tamer was transferred to Megiddo Prison.

He first appeared before a judge on 27 June in Salem Military Court.
