Israel Border Police detained and beat a nine-year-old Jewish resident of Hebron on Saturday, after he entered a closed military zone near the house that was recently occupied by settlers.

The event occurred around 7 A.M., after a group of Jewish children began playing in the lot between the house and a nearby closed military zone. According to eyewitnesses, at a certain point, the boy entered the 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.”

According to the statement, 10 youths broke into the closed military zone and began beating the police and security officers in the area. When the police detained the leader of the youth, a group of settlers began attacking the officers. One of the settlers grabbed the neck of the youth and pulled him in an attempt to free him from police custody.

News of the incident comes a day after the release of a video depicting a senior IDF officer striking a Danish activist with an M-16 rifle. The video, which was posted by the International Solidarity Movement on YouTube on Sunday, showed Lt.-Col. Shalom Eisner beating youths who took part in a pro-Palestinian bike ride in the Jordan Valley.

      title said it all. what do you think the US does with traitors, or what Israel does with traitors. look at Mordechai Vanunu who leaked Israels illegal nuclear program and was given something like 18 years or more jail time with half of it being solitary confinement.

  • A group of children broke in to the closed military zone and began beating police and security?

    I'm sorry, but fuck you! Fuck you in your stupid lying face. If you're going to lie through your teeth, come up with something plausible, not "ZOMG!! Commando school kids were being meanies to us".

  • For the record: I didn't brought it here so ppl will feel sorry for the kid, I brought it here to show a certain point which for me it is quite obvious: First, IDF forces usually don't hesitate to use force against settlers which confront them, just the same they might do it with Palestinians.

    Iv'e seen several videos in which IDF forces used extreme brutality against settlers, but usually such videos don't get published in LL.

    Second, there are those around here who like to spread their hate More..

    This Doctor is in line for a Nobel Prize. It has NEVER been reported before that claimed pain can be confirmed. The claim can be but the pain cannot be detected.

  • i am totally shocked about this story. surprised it happened the way it did. although it wasnt the soldier who lifted the child by the neck. but in all honesty i do remember the story of the young palestinian girl who got too close to the military zone and she got an entire assault rifle clip emptied into her and no charges against the soldier. stories like this one about the settlers show IDF has control over their weapons and dont always have to respond by shooting rubber bullets and tear More..

      You are talking about several years ago, when the West Bank was still a WAR ZONE (during the 2000's).

      In recent years it is very very very rare that Palestinian kids are being shot to death by IDF soldiers.
      Including rioting Palestinians.


      Once more, soldiers tend to use same amount of force when they are being provoked by settlers,Palestinians or activists- I've seen videos with the 3 different groups and they are the same.

      listen, i agree with you i see the few videos here and there of jews getting evicted from homes they are occupying, or some minor clashes with settlers. but in reality we see more settler vidoes of them harassing, beating, etc etc. now my thing is this, there should have been no hesitation for the IDF soldiers to use deadly force when the settlers broke into their base, but they didnt. they let them come in and even assault them. i know maybe they may have caught a few and punished More..

      When it took place (around last November) I reported about it over here, including the hundreds of furios comments by regular Israelis (and IDF officers) calling to consider such settlers as terrorists and open fire on them.

      But still, an IDF soldier will feel much more under threat by a rioting Palestinian than a rioting settler, simply cuase of hisotry - thousands of soldiers were attacked,stabbed and shot by Palestinians, while by settlers they are mostly beaten or humilia More..

      i am not denying what you are saying but if you have some videos it would be nice to see videos of the IDF treating settlers who riot and attack soldiers and innocent palestinians the same way the IDF treat palestinians who attack soldiers and innocent people and riot.

      No he didn't- this is talking out of your ass,mate- they have the kippa (and other indentifications) and believe me an Israeli can know when he face another Israeli.

      Settlers encounter the same amout of brutalism when they provoke soldiers. Iv'e seen videos.

      if the kid was palestinian the soldier would have shot him dead.

      Then we would have hear about killed Palestinian kids in the WB each 2-3 days, but we don't.
      In fact, reports about Palestinian kids getting shot over there are quite rare.

      If it was a Palestinian the soldier probably whould have done the same, beating and arresting him, someone whould have tape it, and then we would have say that's how they treat the Palestinians, while the Settlers get away with it- I wanted to show that such cases are the same for everyone.

  • first the settlers attack an IDF base and beat IDF soldiers with not one shot from the IDF not even tear gas or anything and now this....further proof IDF only uses its weapons on palestinians. what would have happened if a group of palestinians broke down the military zone barrier and attacked IDF troops.

      What is the fucking difference between this and the video of the activist being beaten in his face...??? Did the activist (or any of the others,including the Palestinians) were shot?????

      In both cases a soldier snaped and used brutality, but no one is shooting the activists OR THE PALESTINAINS!!

      why not just let them ride their bicycles. the idf could have just followed them to make sure they dont do anything, but they could have just let them ride and enjoy the scenery since they were their to visit, or is it because they are their to visit and show compassion and solidarity with the palestinians

      Well, on this one I think exactly the same as you.

      Stupid policies, no doubt.


      But on the mikro level, when you have cases like the beating soldier, there is more then just one side: Soldiers are regular people, and like police men (all over the world) when they need to make police jobs, and being provoked (By activists like by Settlers) they might loose it from time to time and let their hands talk... They do it to settlers just the same they do it to Palestinians and acti More..
