Beating & abuse

Beating & abuse

Violence by Israeli security forces toward Palestinians is not new. Most cases are of relatively low-grade abuse: a slap, a kick, an insult, a pointless delay at a checkpoint or humiliating conduct. This type of abusive behavior has gradually become a part of everyday reality for Palestinians of the occupied territories. On occasion there are also cases of more serious violence, which Israeli authorities condemn but often do not take real measures against the perpetrators.
