Israeli forces arrested a 15-year old boy from Silwan after beating him near Dung Gate entrance to Jerusalem’s Old City. Muhammad Minzer Baidoun was physically assaulted by Israeli officers, who claimed Baidoun was supposed to be serving a house arrest term.
Baidoun’s parents reject the claim, saying their son has received no such sentence.
Dung Gate is a site of common harassment for Palestinian youth due to Israeli officers’ presence there, with many children often ambushed and beaten.
