Border Police detain Palestinian photographer, allow settlers to harass him, 2017

On 12 March 2017, during the Jewish holiday of Purim (traditionally celebrated by dressing up), A B’Tselem volunteer filmed a Hebron resident who, while documenting the detention of a Palestinian youth at a checkpoint, was detained himself.
