GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained a 17-year-old Palestinian after assaulting and injuring him in his head, face and hands, a Palestinian Prisoner’s Society lawyer said.

PPS lawyer Anan Khader, who visited the detainee, Taher Ziad Taher Aqraa, at Huwwara detention center, said that Israeli forces fired tear-gas canisters at Aqraa while he was watering his family’s plants in Qalqiliya, assaulted him with the butts of their rifles and boots, and hit him in the head, face and body.

The lawyer added that Aqraa was moved near a settlement for treatment and would later be taken for interrogation.

The director of the PPS highlighted that these assaults against Palestinians and especially minors are “barbarian” and that Israel does not respect laws or the rights of children.

Is this kind of behaviour decent? Why does israel act so aggressively? The civilized world must speak up against such acts.

Let me tell you a personal story: i heard from a palestinian who burned tires and threw rocks - We asked him "why you were arrested". He Replied - "I Was in the forest picking strawberrys, then they arrested me". we asked "Were you alone?" -"Oh, right next to me there were 300 angry protesters burning tires and throwing rocks. but not me, i was just picking strawberries". (he was arrested in the middle of a street). WATERING HIS FAMILY PLANTS....YEAH RIGHT
