Israeli border police can be seen detaining two boys on their way to school.
Israeli human rights organisation B’Tselem has published a video that shows Israeli occupation forces detaining two young Palestinian children in the West Bank city of Hebron.
According to the NGO, on 13 September at around 7:30am Israeli Border Police officers detained two Palestinian boys who live in the Old City of Hebron: 13-year-old Q.R. and eight-year-old ‘A.H..
The pair were seized “on their way to school on a-Sahla Street”. According to the Israeli officers, “they had thrown stones at the nearby Checkpoint 160”.
After roughly grabbing the two children, the occupation forces “took the two to the Pharmacy Checkpoint, some 50 metres from the school”.

“There,” B’Tselem continued, “they were made to sit and forbidden to talk to relatives who came to the checkpoint.” After roughly an hour and a half, they were taken to a police station.
Two hours later, ‘A.H. was “allowed to go home with his mother,” while “Q.R. was taken to the police station in Kiryat Arba [illegal settlement], where he was questioned for about half an hour and then sent home with his father.”
