23 Mar 2014

Al-'Arrub RC, 8 Jan. 2014: B'Tselem researchers Manal al-Jaabari and Musa Abu Hashhash saw soldiers detain Ahmad and Hilmi al-Ghreidi, both 8. The boys were released 10 minutes later. Clearly posing for al-Jaabari’s camera, an officer spoke kindly to the boys. In Hebrew, although told they don’t understand, he made insulting comments about al-Jaabari. He and another soldier took their pictures with her, saying "just like at the zoo".
