Arrogant zionist officers harshly interrogate Palestinian minor
Fresh video footage has appeared showing Israeli military officers cruelly interrogating a Palestinian teenager in custody.
In the video, broadcast by the Arabic-language Palestine al-Yawm satellite television network, the Israeli officers can be seen yelling, cursing at and verbally abusing 13-year-old Ahmad Manasra, whom they accuse of carrying out a stabbing attack on an illegal settler near Pisgat Ze’ev settlement in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).
The Palestinian minor eventually breaks down in tears, insisting that he does not remember anything.
At the beginning of the video, an Israeli officer is captured on camera shouting and raising his hand threateningly at Manasra.
“You are a liar!” the officer yells, adding, “I’ll show a video how you stabbed and ran after an Israeli.”
Manasra tells the officers that he had telephoned his lawyer, and that he would arrive in ten minutes. One of the officers, however, replies that he “knows the law” and begins the interrogation immediately.
The Israeli officers continue grilling the 13-year-old Palestinian until he starts crying and beating his head in frustration.
“I don’t remember; I have gone mad,” Manasra says. “I swear I don’t remember anything.”
On Tuesday, Israeli soldiers shot and killed a 16-year-old Palestinian teenager, identified as Sadeq Ziad Gharbiyeh, after he allegedly attempted to stab an Israeli border guard near the town of Abu Dis.
Later in the day, a Palestinian man was killed by Israeli forces in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) over an alleged stabbing attack.
Tensions in the occupied territories have dramatically escalated in recent weeks due to the Israeli regime’s imposition of restrictions in August on the entry of Palestinian worshipers to the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds.
Palestinians are angry at increasing violence by Israeli settlers at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound and their attacks on Palestinian properties, saying that the Tel Aviv regime seeks to change the status quo of the compound.
Last month, senior Hamas leader, Ismail Haniyeh, called the recent spate of clashes between Palestinians and Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank and East al-Quds an Intifada against the Tel Aviv regime.
Over 80 Palestinians have been killed in the recent escalation of violence since the start of October.
