Incident occurs after a group of Jewish children began playing in the lot between the house recently occupied by Jewish settlers and a nearby closed military zone.
A Border Police officer choked the boy, and held him in the air for approximately 10 minutes. Residents who were praying at the nearby Tomb of the Patriarchs were able to release the child from the officer’s hands. Two were arrested on suspicion of attacking the officer. The child’s parents lodged a complaint with the Justice Ministry's department for the investigation of police officers on Sunday.
In the wake of the event, the child had difficulty breathing and suffered from pain in his back and chest. A children’s doctor confirmed the claims.
The Border Police issued a response to the incident, saying it is “unfortunate that the incident was presented in such a distorted way.”
